Our love for homemade Whole30 mayo continues, and up next on our menu are these steamed artichokes dipped in a OH-SO delicious chipotle-lime aioli! You can’t go wrong serving these up as an appetizer when having friends over for dinner, or as a shared side dish any day of the week!
- 2 large globe artichokes
- For the Aioli:
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve the artichoke with the aioli for dipping! Enjoy!
