Not only are they fresh, they also just so happen to be at their lowest price of the year. The month of May has many lovely in season vegetables including artichokes. What will you do with them? Try some of these inexpensive recipes with artichokes.

Have you ever cooked an artichoke before? Do you know what parts to eat, and which parts are inedible? If you aren’t sure, I highly suggest you check out this step-by-step guide that Simply Recipes has put together. Its not as difficult as you may have thought!

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Food Network has Alton Brown’s recipe for a tasty spinach and artichoke dip. It takes just 15 minutes to prepare and cook. It requires 1 ½ cups of thawed, chopped, frozen, artichoke hearts. I’m sure there must be a way to substitute fresh ones instead of frozen. You will also need 1 cup of thawed, chopped, frozen spinach, some cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, parmesan, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and garlic. It’s perfect for serving at a graduation party (or other celebration).

Braised Baby Artichokes and New Potatoes
This one can be found at My Recipes. It requires 12 baby artichokes (or about 1 ½ pounds). You will also need 2 ½ cups of small red potatoes that have been cut into quarters. Add some peas, carrots, onion, dill, mint, pepper, salt, olive oil, and lemon juice. This tasty recipe would make a nice side dish.

Pasta With Grilled Artichokes
Saveur has a main course of pasta with grilled artichokes that will serve four people. You will need 1 pound of baby artichokes which comes to about 10 of them. Other ingredients include ½ pound of spaghetti, minced garlic, parmesan, minced fresh parsley, lemon juice, unsalted butter, olive oil, salt, pepper, and crushed red chili flakes. You already know how to cook spaghetti noodles, so that part will be super easy!

Artichoke and Ripe Olive Tuna Salad
Looking for something lighter? Eating Well has an artichoke recipe that would be nice on a hot, humid, day. It requires 1 cup of chopped canned artichoke hearts, ½ cup of chopped olives, 1 12-ounce can of chunk light tuna, some mayonnaise, lemon juice, and oregano. You can serve it as a sandwich, as an open face sandwich, or on a thick slice of tomato. This recipe makes about 5 servings.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
