Steamed Artichokes with Two Dipping Sauces

Steamed Artichokes with Two Dipping Sauces

Artichokes are one of the most healing vegetables on this planet. When steamed, they retain most of their nutrients and make a delicious and healing snack or meal. In this recipe, you’ll find two tasty options to enjoy with your artichokes: Mustard Maple Dipping Sauce and Zucchini Herb Dipping Sauce. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.

Artichokes contain phytochemical compounds that stop the growth of tumors and cysts inside the liver. The liver relies on other chemical compounds found in artichokes for many of its own chemical functions—they work hand in hand to keep the liver’s neutralization, screening, and filtering abilities strong.

Steamed Artichokes with Two Dipping Sauces

Ingredients:

  • 4 artichokes
  • 1 lemon, cut in half

MUSTARD MAPLE DIPPING SAUCE

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped parsley

ZUCCHINI HERB DIPPING SAUCE

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed herbs, such as dill, parsley, thyme, and/or chives

Directions:

To prepare the artichokes, use a knife to carefully slice off the top quarter of each artichoke as well as the end of each stem. Use scissors to cut off the tips of the artichoke leaves to remove the thorns. Rub the whole artichoke immediately with the cut lemon.

Place a steaming basket in a large pot filled with water until it reaches the basket. Place the prepared artichokes in the basket and cover. Bring to a boil and steam until the artichoke leaves can be removed by gently pulling. This should take about 30 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the artichokes.

To make the Mustard Maple Dipping Sauce, whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl. Serve immediately.

To make the Zucchini Herb Dipping Sauce, combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Once the artichokes have slightly cooled, peel off the leaves, dip them in your dressings, and nibble the “meat” from the base of each leaf. Next, scrape off the choke from each artichoke and enjoy the hearts.

Tips:

When you’re choosing between water and Healing Broth for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free of oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Healing Broth in advance and freeze it (consider ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like this.
