Recipe Tips/Substitutions

Before you make these artichoke hearts in the air fryer, read through our recipe tips so that you know what to expect!

  • You can buy artichoke hearts jarred in water or artichoke hearts marinated in oil and spices. For this recipe, we would recommend buying the ones in water. If you can only find those in oil, drain them and don’t add any extra oil to the hearts. Depending on the seasonings included, you might also want to adjust the spices you add – if any.
  • Parmesan cheese is optional but it gives the artichoke an added flavor boost!
  • Since every air fryer is different – and the size of your artichoke hearts might be different than ours, your cooking time might vary slightly.

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

Storage Tips

Air fried artichoke hearts can be stored but they aren’t usually the kind of appetizer you have leftovers for.

Store cooked artichoke hearts in a sealed container and place them in the fridge.

They can last for around 3-5 days – but eat them sooner rather than later because the moisture can make them softer over time.

To reheat, toss them back in the air fryer for a few minutes.
