  • 2 large artichokes
  • 2 cups water


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Trim about 1 inch from the top of the artichokes with a serrated knife.
  2. Pour water into the inner pot of a pressure cooker. Place trivet over the water and lay artichokes on the trivet.
  3. Seal lid on pressure cooker, turn steam vent to Sealing, and cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes. Immediately turn steam vent to Venting to relieve pressure.
Mealthy tip:

Enjoy artichoke leaves dipped into mayonnaise or melted butter, or simply with a fresh squeeze of lemon.

The first time cooking them, 14 minutes was not enough. The next time I cooked them on high for 20 minutes and they were fine. They were four medium 'chokes about 3.5" wide.

I received my Mealthy as a present for Father's Day 2018. I unpacked it and started reading the User Manual and the recipes. One of the first things I thought of was; 'How quickly will it cook an artichoke?'. Right now I'm going to cook a couple. So much better than stovetop? I'm sure it will be. =^ )

Use steamer basket, spread leaves open, add garlic, squeeze lemon juice, shaved Parmesan cheese and top with fresh basil then steam - superb!!

Do yourself a favor and make an aioli for dipping the finished artichokes. I also finished mine on the grill because that's the way I'm used to doing them. I have to say that using the pressure cooker was MUCH easier than steaming over boiling water in a pot. One of my favorite seasonal treats, for sure.

This is my new favorite way to make artichokes. It was so much easier and faster than doing it on the stovetop, which normally takes me about 45 minutes for two artichokes. Perfectly cooked and simple clean up? YES. I always served artichokes with mayo + sriracha, so delicious.

Fantastic recipe, took way less time than the stove. Now I need to make some homemade mayo to go with it!

I added a little lemon juice and salt to these steamed artichokes. They turned out great, and much simpler than steaming in a pot on the stove. I served with hollandaise sauce, and it was perfect.
