whole artichokes
1 1/2 cup(s)
water
4 tblsp
melted butter, mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise, to serve
lemon wedges, to serve

Directions 8 steps | 13 Minutes

Step 1

Prepare the artichoke. Rinse the artichokes thoroughly.

Step 2

Trim the artichoke of the fibrous stems. Remove the small outer leaves off the bottom of the artichoke. Trim the top of the artichoke to reveal the inner leaves and remove the spikey tips.

Step 3

Use a scissor to trim off the sharp tips of the larger leaves of the artichoke. 

Step 4

Place an Instant Pot steaming rack in the bottom of the Instant Pot and add the water.

Step 5

Place the trimmed artichokes on top of the steaming rack and close the lid. Make sure the lid is set to sealing. Set the Instant Pot to manual high pressure and set the timer for 8 minutes. (See notes 1.)

Step 6

Once the timer goes off, quick-release the pressure. Be careful not to stand over the cooker while the pressure is being released as the steam is very hot. 

Step 7

Squeeze lemon wedges into the melted butter, mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise to taste. Mix until well combined.

Step 8

Dip the leaves into the lemon sauce and enjoy!


Notes:

  1. The cooking time is for a large artichoke, about five inches wide. Increase or decrease the time by a couple of minutes for a larger or smaller artichoke.
