Artichoke

ingredients:
artichokes
lemon
thyme
salt
pepper
1/2 cup mayo
siracha
sweet thai chili sauce

Artichoke

directions:
Wash and trim your artichokes. Rub the cut sides of artichokes with one lemon half to prevent discoloration.

Combine 2 lemon halves and thyme in a large pot with a lid. Bring to a simmer and season the liquid with salt and pepper.

Place the trimmed artichokes, bottoms up, in the simmering liquid. Cover the pot and simmer for about 30 minutes. They’re done when a knife slips easily into the base.

Combine mayo and desired amount of sauces to create aioli.
