YIELD: 2-4 SERVINGS | PREP: 5M | COOK: 20M | TOTAL TIME: 25M

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium artichokes 
  • 1 lemon, sliced in half 
  • 2 tbs mayonnaise 
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard 
  • 1 pinch paprika

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Trim artichokes: Wash well and remove the damaged outer leaves. If the artichokes are spiny, cut off the top edge and, using kitchen shears, trim the spines off the surrounding leaves. Wipe any cut edges with a lemon half -this will keep them from oxidizing. Add one cup of water to the pressure cooker base and place artichokes facing upwards and then spritz any remaining lemon on top of each. 
  2. Close the pressure cooker. ”. Press [Manual Setting], [Cooking Time] and then use the [-] button to choose 10 minutes pressure cooking time. When time is up, press [Keep Warm/Cancel button to turn off the cooker and set a timer to count 10 minutes – the artichokes are still steaming in the residual heat of the cooker. Then release the pressure. 
  3. Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise with mustard and place in a small dipping container, then sprinkle with paprika. Lift the artichokes out of the cooker gently using tongs. Serve warm.
