Is your go-to veggie typically broccoli or spinach? Change it up and serve up some roasted artichokes! This vegetable deserves a place at the table, and we aren’t talking about a party dip.
It doesn’t get much easier than these Roasted “Cheesy” Artichokes. If you keep a can in the pantry, you’ll always have tasty side to whip up in a pinch. We love this recipe because it’s quick and easy, and only calls for a few ingredients.
We keep it vegan by using nutritional yeast. Yum!
Artichokes are rich in fiber and a good source of potassium, calcium, vitamin C, and antioxidants. They are also a source of prebiotics, which are necessary for good gut flora. Yay for a healthy gut! We love chatting about the in and outs of gut health in The 131 Method. A healthy gut is the foundation for a good mood, lasting energy, hormone balance, and a healthy weight.
Other Health Benefits in Artichokes:
- Particularly high in folate
- Good for cholesterol
- Improve liver health
- Helpful for IBS
- Artichokes contain inulin, a type of fiber which acts as a prebiotic
- Low in fat while rich in fiber (one medium artichoke contains almost 7 grams of fiber; 23–28% of the reference daily intake)
- Anti-cancer benefits
