Looking for an easy, but impressive fall appetizer? Look no further than a steamed artichoke coupled with spicy aioli! Very few people have the patience to steam and artichoke, but once steamed, the presentation is perfect for any dinner party, casual gathering, or even your own personal snack time.
1/2 cup mayo
sweet thai chili sauce
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.
