EASY STEAMED ARTICHOKES
- Prepare artichokes for steaming: Snap off tough outer leaves. Using a serrated knife, cut off top 1/3 of artichoke. Snip remaining sharp or spiky tips using kitchen shears. Trim stem so artichoke stands upright. Rub cut surfaces with lemon to prevent discoloration. Repeat with remaining artichokes and lemon.
- Set a steamer basket in a large pot; add enough water so it reaches just below the basket. Squeeze lemon juice into water and add 1 tablespoon salt; bring to a boil. Place artichokes in steamer basket, stem-side up. Cover pot, and steam until heart is tender when pierced with a tip of a paring knife, and inner leaves pull out easily, 25 to 35 minutes; add more water to pot, if necessary. Serve warm or at room temperature with Easy Hollandaise or melted butter, if desired.
SIMPLE STEAMED ARTICHOKES
- Cut stem from artichokes and discard, making sure the bottom of each artichoke is flat. Cut top 1 inch (or so) of the artichoke and discard. Snip the thorny ends from each artichoke leaf with a pair of kitchen scissors.
- Fill the bottom of a pot with a couple of inches of water, adding garlic, lemon juice, and bay leaf to the water. Place a steamer basket in the pot, making sure that the water does not flow over the bottom of the steamer basket.
- Place the artichokes in the basket, resting on the flattened bottoms.
- Bring water to a boil, cover the pot, and cook until the leaves can be easily pulled from the artichoke, 20 to 30 minutes.

STEAMED ARTICHOKES WITH LEMON BUTTER
Large, plump artichokes are generally better for steaming than smaller ones. They may take longer to soften, but you'll end up with plenty of meaty petals to pull off and dip into the lemon butter. This recipe gives instructions for steaming the artichokes in a traditional pot, but a pressure cooker (either electric or stovetop) is a faster option if you have one. See the Note below for instructions.

- Pull off any brown or very tough outer leaves from one artichoke. Use a sharp knife to cut off the top 1 inch of artichoke, then rub with the cut side of the lemon. Use kitchen shears or scissors to cut the pointy tops off the remaining outer layer of leaves. Use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to peel the stem down to its tender pale-colored core; immediately rub the stem with a lemon half. Use your fingers to separate the center leaves to expose the fuzzy pale choke sitting on top of the heart. Use a grapefruit spoon (or other spoon) to scoop out the choke, and rub a little lemon juice over the exposed flesh. Repeat with the remaining artichokes.
- Fill a medium pot with 2 inches of water, place a steamer basket inside, and bring water to a simmer. Place the artichokes bottoms down on the rack, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and simmer over low heat until you can easily pull off an artichoke leaf, 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. Remove from the steamer basket and transfer to a serving platter.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, garlic and salt. Slowly whisk in butter. To serve, have everyone pull off the leaves and dunk the meaty bottoms into the lemon butter, swirling to mix butter with each dip (the butter will separate as it sits).

- Put the parsley, garlic, bay leaves, lemons, wine, oil and water in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Season the liquid with salt and pepper.
- In the meantime prepare the artichokes:
- Wash artichokes under cold water. Using a heavy stainless steel knife, cut off the stems close to the base. Pull off the lower petals that are small and tough. Cut off the top inch of the artichoke and rub with half a lemon to preserve the green color. Or you may put the artichokes in water that has some lemon juice in it. If you wish, trim the thorny tips of the petals with kitchen shears.
- Place the artichokes in the steaming broth, bottom up. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. The artichokes are done when a knife is inserted into the base and there is no resistance.
- To eat, pull off a leaf and scrape the meat off the tender end with your front teeth. Dip the ends of the leaves in lemon juice and melted butter if desired. When you reach the center cone of purple prickly leaves, remove it. This is the choke that protects the heart. Now, scrape away the thistle fuzz covering the artichoke heart. The heart is the meatiest and in my opinion, the best part of the artichoke. Steamed artichokes may be served hot or cold. Enjoy!
- You may dip the artichoke in mayonnaise that has lemon added to it, or butter and lemon juice. Yum!

STEAMED GLOBE ARTICHOKES WITH PECORINO VINAIGRETTE AND FRIED GARLIC CHIPS
Globe artichokes, nature's most intriguing pull-apart delicacy, pair well with robust Italian flavors. Serving the artichokes with a zesty pecorino Romano vinaigrette and toasty slivers of garlic is a lighter alternative to stuffing them with breadcrumbs.

- Prepare the artichoke stem: Pull any leaves off the stem, and use a vegetable peeler to peel off the stem's woody exterior. Use a sharp stainless steel knife to trim off the end of the stem and gently score the trimmed end with an "X" pattern. Rub the stem all over with the cut side of one of the lemon segments to prevent browning.
- Prepare the artichoke bud: Cut off the top quarter off the artichoke, about 1/2-1 inch. Rub the cut leaves all over with the lemon. Use kitchen shears to snip off the pointy tips of the remaining leaves.
- Steam the artichoke: Fill a large pot with 1 inch of water, and squeeze in any remaining lemon juice. Add the squeezed lemon segments to the pot. Place a steamer basket in the pot, add the artichoke, and bring to a boil. Cover and steam for 35-45 minutes, or until the artichoke stem is fork-tender and you can easily peel off the outer leaves.

DIPS FOR STEAMED ARTICHOKES - THE SPRUCE EATS
- Aioli (Garlic Mayonnaise) Aioli is a homemade garlic mayonnaise made with fresh garlic, egg, lemon juice, and olive oil. It is easy to make as long as you add the oil slowly, and is pure perfection on steamed artichoke leaves.
- Green Olive Dip. This green olive salad dressing also works as a delicious dip for artichokes. Add a tablespoon of capers to the olives, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice for a briny kick that works well with the "chokes."
- Romesco Sauce. Romesco is a Spanish dip of red pepper, tomato, garlic, and almonds. It is tasty on many things, including grilled meats and broiled fish (and even directly off of a spoon!)
- Toasted Cumin Yogurt Dip. In this Middle Eastern-inspired dip, cumin seeds are toasted, crushed, and mixed with yogurt and cayenne pepper to create a creamy artichoke-friendly dip.
- Creamy Tarragon Sauce. The combination of herbs and butter marry perfectly with the earthy flavor of artichoke leaves. In this sauce, flour, milk, and sour cream help create a creamy consistency, ideal for dipping.
- Melted Butter. This list isn't complete without the traditional melted butter for dipping. You can turn plain melted butter into "drawn" butter by having the melted butter sit for a few minutes.
