  • Serves2-3


    • 2 -3 medium artichokes, trimmed (see below)
    • 1 cup water
    • 2 teaspoons Olive oil
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 clove garlic cut in half
    • 1/4 lemon (juiced)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)


Wash and trim the sharp points off the artichoke, then put two or sometimes three on a rack in a pressure cooker. Add the water, bay leaf, a couple of squirts (teaspoons) of olive oil, garlic lemon juice and salt if using. Seal the cooker, let the pressure rise, then lower the light and cook for about 13 minutes. Cool cooker under cold water then serve artichoke with melted butter or whatever else you choose. We like a homemade vinaigrette.
