Steamed Artichokes with Chipotle-Lime Aioli


  • 2 large globe artichokes
  • For the Aioli:
    • 1/2 cup (whole 30 approved) Mayo (we use Homemade or Primal Kitchen)
    • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
    • 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
    • 1 tbsp. finely grated lime zest
    • 1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder
    • 1/4 tsp. salt


  1.  First, lets prepare your artichokes for steaming by trimming them up a bit: using a serrated knife, cut off the top third of the artichoke. Then, with a pair of kitchen scissors, cut off the top portion of each leaf to remove the thorny part.  Using a knife, trim just a 1/4 inch or so off the bottom of the stem, then peel it with a paring knife or peeler.  Now your artichoke is ready for steaming!
  2. I use this handy-dandy super easy electronic steamer to steam my artichokes for about 35 minutes (because it is awesome for steaming veggies!!) But no fear if you don’t have one: Pack artichokes upright in a large pot.Pour in 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 35 minutes.
  3. While your artichokes are steaming, prepare your aioli by combining all of the “For the Aioli” ingredients in a small bowl and stir until well combined.
  4. Serve the artichoke with the aioli for dipping! Enjoy!
