Steamed Artichokes with Garlic Mayonnaise


4 artichokes
2 lemons
1 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Cut the stems from the artichokes and trim off the tough lower leaves.
  • Halve the lemons and rub the bottom of the artichokes with one lemon half to prevent discoloration.
  • Juice the remaining lemon halves and reserve 1 tbs of juice.
  • Add the remaining lemon juice to a large pot of water and bring to a boil.
  • Put the artichokes in the pan and cover with a plate or smaller pot lid to keep them submerged.
  • Cook the artichokes for 25-30 minutes or until you can easily insert the point of a knife into the stem end.
  • Meanwhile place the mayonnaise in a small bowl then crush or press the garlic into the mayonnaise along with the mustard and the reserved 1 tbs of lemon juice.
  • Season the mayo with salt and pepper and taste to adjust seasoning if desired.
  • Remove the artichokes with a slotted spoon and drain in a colander, stem side up.
  • Divide among plates and serve with the garlic mayo for dipping.
