How To Cook & Eat Artichokes
WHY MAKE THIS RECIPE?
Fresh artichokes might look intimidating, but don’t be shy! With little effort you’ll get to the heart of the delicious vegetable.
2 c water 4 cloves garlic 2 bay leaves 2 tbsp lemon juice 1 tsp salt 4 artichokes 4 tbsp butter
Place trivet inside Instant Pot and add water, garlic, bay leaves, lemon juice and salt. Add artichokes, cut-sides up.
Set on high pressure. Press STEAM setting and set timer for 10 minutes. When cook time is up, do a quick release and wait for the float valve to drop.
Immediately remove lid and transfer artichokes to a separate bowl using tongs.
Pull the leaves off of the artichoke starting at the base. Dip the base of the leaf into the melted butter and using your teeth pull the “meat” from each leaf.
Continue doing this until the leaves are very soft and thin. Gently twist and pull the leaves off, revealing the “choke” or fuzz.
Scrape out the fuzz using the edge of a spoon, revealing the artichoke heart. Cut into bite-size pieces and dip in melted butter! ENJOY
