Why You’ll Love Artichoke Hearts - Quartered
With a spiky exterior and odd shape, an artichoke can be a pretty intimidating item to buy at the grocery store—even if it does taste great. And while preparing a fresh artichoke from scratch is certainly possible, it’s even easier to add the fresh flavor and thick texture to salads, antipasti, and dips using a can of Native Forest Quartered Artichoke Hearts.
How do you eat an artichoke?
Artichokes are a variety of the herbaceous thistle family. They contain an edible base (the heart), which is covered by buds that bloom, changing the outer texture to coarse and barely edible. The interior heart, however, is wildly delicious, versatile, and has a high nutritional value to boot. Native Forest has cut the hearts into bite-sized, quartered pieces that are equally convenient and flavorful, allowing you to reap the benefits whenever your tastebuds desire.
The health benefits of artichokes
There are a lot of reasons to love artichokes—they have no trans fat or sugar, are rich in fiber and protein, and high in vitamin C, B vitamins, and calcium, among many other nutrients. All of these elements combine, making artichokes a potent food to help the body with:
- Digestion. Artichokes contain prebiotics, a type of fiber that passes through the stomach undigested and is then fermented in the gut. This helps to strengthen the good bacteria in the body and ward off the bad.
- Cancer prevention. Perhaps artichoke’s most potent and well-known claim to fame is in its ability to prevent cancer. Artichokes have the highest antioxidant level of any vegetable, protecting the body against the effects of free radicals that can lead to disease. The heavy vitamin C content also ups its antioxidant game.
- Lowering blood pressure. Artichokes are rich sources of potassium, a mineral that neutralizes the effects of excess sodium. Sodium leads to increased blood pressure, which (if left untreated) can put people at risk for heart attacks or coronary heart disease.
- Liver health. Antioxidants also improve the overall health of the liver by reducing any toxins that are present and eliminating them from the rest of the body. It’s also possible that the antioxidants in artichokes can help to repair a damaged liver, which is quite a feat since it’s one of the slowest organs in the body to regenerate.
- Birth defects. Artichokes contain folic acid—an essential component of prenatal vitamins because it plays a vital role in closing the neural tube in vitro.
- Inflammation. Inside Native Forest Artichoke Hearts Quartered you’ll find loads of magnesium, which is a mineral present in every cell in the human body. It’s also a big player in reducing acute and chronic inflammation, which can lead to more serious health problems later on, like asthma, allergies, and Crohn’s disease.
Cooking with Native Forest Quartered Artichoke Hearts
With Native Forest Quartered Artichoke Hearts, the hard work in preparing this vegetable is already done, and it’s ready to be added to some of your favorite dishes. Artichoke tastes amazing served cold, but it can also be fried, grilled, or mixed in with sauces and served warm. Here are a few of Thrive Market’s favorite ways to prepare it:
Ditch traditional marinara sauce and try something fresher for spaghetti. This recipe is inspired by Mediterranean cooking and combines salty capers and sardines, green olives, zesty citrus, and artichoke hearts over a bed of gluten-free brown rice pasta. For added flavor, add in Dijon mustard, olive oil, garlic, Maldon salt, and red pepper flakes.
Baking this pizza is an experience in itself, filling your home with an absolutely mouthwatering aroma. A crispy gluten-free crust topped with roasted garlic tomato sauce is the perfect bed for molten mozzarella cheese and Mediterranean vegetables like olives and zucchini. Native Forest Quartered Artichoke Hearts are also the perfect size to throw on top and will taste wonderful once the tips are charred. As soon as the sauce starts to bubble, you’ll know it’s ready to enjoy.
While making a salad seems easy enough, whipping up one from scratch can feel like there’s not enough of the good stuff (like vegetables) and too much of the bad stuff (like dressing). Chopped salads such as this one balance out the ratio with a good amount of crunchy cucumber, creamy avocado, sweet cherry tomatoes, and salty feta, plus a light coating of citrus-garlic dressing in every bite. Throw a quarter-cup of Native Forest Quartered Artichoke Hearts into the bowl, or fry them up first to add a little heat to the salad.
Roasting veggies really brings out a smoky flavor, which pairs well next to light and refreshing salmon marinated in honey mustard glaze. In addition to the fennel, beets, and garlic, place some Native Forest Quartered Artichoke Hearts in the pan for extra texture and flavor. In just a half-hour, the finished product comes out looking like a restaurant-quality dish.

Great flavor and convenience. We use for pizza topping.
Native forest artichokes
This is not the first time I've ordered this and it won't be the last. I like these very much. And I would recommend them
Of course I loved them, they're artichokes! It is very convenient to have them quartered. These are very good and a good price.
Your products are excellent and conform to the Paleo lifestyle. However I have one complaint ------you are showing a box of coconut cereal in the pictures, but you keep sending me just coconut flakes! However I like the artichokes very much!
- Frances Siecko
I loved the artichoke hearts that I received from you, they were so tasty and they looked amazing for being canned! I will definitely order again!
I make a chicken dish with these and it is wonderful. Nice that it is not such a huge jar like you get at Costco, so if I don't use them all up at once I can get them used up before they go bad!
These artichokes are awesome! Great find
I heart these hearts!
Good quality artichoke hearts that are non-GMO, Paleo-approved, and low sodium! So far I've used them in a Greek pasta salad with some olives and feta for a lunch potluck and it was a huge hit! I also sauteed them in coconut oil with some other vegetables and quinoa and that was awesome too! I'm eager to use them in more dishes! Delicious!
I heart artichokes!
Artichokes have been my favorite vegetable since I first tried one (unfortunately, that took until college!) The down side of them is that they are difficult to eat when you cook them, and they're not always in season. I don't always like the marinades they come in, so I'm always on the hunt for a good plain canned artichoke,
Voila! I have found the best! These are in perfect little bite-sized pieces, so I can take them to work and eat them plain, and the pull tab lid is super convenient. They also mix well in the food processor to make my spinach and artichoke dip. I definitely recommend rinsing these before you eat them though, as they're a bit on the salty side, but overall they're amazing!

medicinal artichoke? yes!
I buy this to relieve gassy stomach, and it works beautifully. An added bonus is its yum factor.
Gotta fix the dented cans
I used to buy these at my local fresh food store, but they discontinued carrying them. I found these artichokes on Thrive, so ordered them. I like putting these on salads and they have great health benefits. These are organic, another good quality.
But the three cans I ordered were all dented, and hell to open. It's fine if you get one can every once in awhile that's caved in, but all three? Three stars for delivery, five if you just go on pure taste, as these are delicious artichokes.
Love these canned artichokes
If you like artichokes, this is a great natural choice that tastes as close as you can get to fresh artichokes. I like to eat them straight from the can to get my veggie fix, but they're also great on salads, and mixed into veggie smoothies for a protein packed breakfast!

After cutting myself on the cutting board badly enough to go to the ER a couple months ago, I've been avoiding cutting foods whenever possible. This helps enable me. These have a good flavor and texture, and I love that I can just open a can and dump it into the soup or whatever else I'm making. Once in awhile, I'd find a leaf that needed to be removed from the soup, but after five cans of this, I still can't really say that I find it to be a regular problem, so I'll still use it.

I live about 30 miles from a large grocer, so ordering is my best option for some items. This is one item and I will order again!
