Let your Anova Precision Oven replace your stovetop steamer... forever. Steamed artichokes are delicious and simple, yet a pain to manage on the stove. Here, the Oven's ample space makes traditional steaming far more convenient. Notes: This recipe works best when there’s some airflow underneath the artichokes. This recipe uses a perforated pan, which is now available to order through Anova. If you don't have one, you can place the artichokes directly on the oven rack, placing a sheet pan below to catch any drips. Depending on the size and freshness of your artichokes, your cooking time can vary dramatically. Start checking on the artichokes at 30 minutes; you may need to increase the cooking time up to at least an hour.

Steps

1. Preheat the Oven

Rack
Sous Vide Mode: Off
Steam: 100%
Temp: 213°F

2. Trim

Cut off the top of each artichoke with a knife, then use scissors to snip the sharp tops off the outer leaves. Pull away the leaves at the stem and use a vegetable peeler to remove the hard outer skin from the stem.

3. Rub with Lemon

The acidity from lemon will prevent the cut edges from turning brown.

5. Pluck, Dip, and Enjoy!

Artichoke leaves are great when served with a creamy, flavorful dip. Mayonnaise is a great base to season with bright, savory flavors.
