Steamed Artichoke with Lemon Butter Sauce

Telling tales of going meat-free? This little piggie went to market to pig out (ahem) on veggies just once this week. Going for veggies over meat is better for your body and loads better for the planet. Livestock like cows emit harmful greenhouse gases into the environment - so having a meat-free meal just once a week for a year means you’ll save 340 lbs of CO2 from wafting into our environment. Now run (wee wee wee) all the way home to whip up this yummy steamed artichoke with lemon butter.

  • 1 whole organic artichoke
  • 2 Tb organic butter
  • 1/2 organic lemon zested
  • 1 organic lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tb flour water (add 1 tsp flour to 3 Tb water and mix)

Cut off the stem and points of the leaves on the artichoke with scissors. Steam for 10-12 mins until the leaves pull off easily. Set aside to cool. In a sauce pan on medium heat, combine butter, lemon juice, salt, and lemon zest. Simmer and add in flour water to thicken. Simmer for another 1 min. Dip artichoke petals into the lemon butter sauce.
