Artichoke with Zesty Vegan Dipping Sauce


  • 1-2 Artichokes
  • ½ cup low fat veganaise
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • Juice from ¼ of a lemon
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Dash of pepper

Directions: Cut off stem from artichoke. I also like to cut the edges of the top of – place artichoke on its side and use a sharp knife to cut off front end leaving a flat surface. Put a steamer tray in a large pot. Fill water to bottom of steamer. Place artichoke (stem side up) in pan. Cover and heat on medium high heat until leaves easy pull off the artichoke – about 20 or so minutes depending on how large the artichoke it. I like to put lemon slices, garlic, and oregano oil in the pot with the artichoke but it is not necessary.

Sauce:  Mix veganise, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Pull of leaves from artichoke and dip in sauce.  

This is a very fun treat.
