Cook Time

  • 2 lemons
  • 2 to 3 fresh thyme sprigs (optional)
  • 2 large Globe artichokes (similar in size)
  • ½ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon Maggi® Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • Ground black pepper
Step 1
Set steamer basket inside large pot; add water to just below basket. Squeeze juice from 1 lemon into water; drop lemon into basket. Add thyme sprigs. Bring water to a boil.
Step 2
Using a serrated or chef’s knife, cut about an inch off top of each artichoke. Trim off part of stems so artichokes sit upright; peel stems if desired. With scissors, trim sharp tips from leaves. Remove any tough exterior bottom leaves. Rub cut surfaces of artichokes with half of remaining lemon. Use other half of lemon for aioli.
Step 3
Place artichokes in steamer basket, bottom side up. Cover; steam for 30 to 45 minutes or until leaves pull away easily and heart or stem is tender when pierced with knife. Add more water while steaming, if needed. Do not let pot boil dry.
Step 4
When artichokes are done, remove from basket and drain upside down for 5 minutes.
Step 5
Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon peel, garlic and bouillon in small bowl; stir well. Season with pepper. Serve with cooled or chilled artichokes.
