1. Wash and trim the artichokes. Pull off lower,
outer leaves/petals and discard. Trim stem ends
slightly. Cut off top inch of artichoke and use

kitchen snips/shears to trim sharp tips of leaves.
Rub all cut surfaces immediately with lemon to
prevent discoloration.
2. Put the water into a microwave-safe casserole
dish large enough to accommodate the artichokes
and squeeze the lemon into the water. Add the
squeezed lemon halves to the water. Put the
artichokes into the casserole and cover with a
sheet of waxed paper, then the lid. Cook in the
microwave on the Veggie (S1-1 Fresh Veggie)
function. Turn artichokes over, re-cover with
waxed paper, and microwave on the Veggie
(S1-1 Fresh Veggie) function.
3. Stand artichokes upright in liquid and cover.
Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with
Creamy Herb Mayo or other favorite dipping sauce
