Are Artichokes Good for you?
YES! In short, artichokes are absolutely good for you. They are full of nutrients to keep your body healthy, have been known to improve your digestive health, and have disease fighting properties. Cooking up this instant pot artichoke recipe is an EXCELLENT idea, and it will also add variety to your weeknight meals.
When are Artichokes in Season?
Artichokes are at their peak season in March through to May, so itâ€™s HIGH TIME to learn how to cook artichokes in instant pot. Go to your local supermarket and snag some while theyâ€™re hot!
How to Choose an Artichoke
Itâ€™s important to be selective when picking up artichokes to buy and bring home. Pick up the artichoke, firstly, and feel if it has a big of weight to it. The solid, heavier artichokes tend to be more fresh as they tend to get lighter as they get older. The leaves should be dark green and firmly closed and the leaves should squeak when you rub them!
How to make Artichokes in Instant Pot
Cut off the top of each artichoke to expose the inside and carefully trim off any dead leaves from the outside.
Pour the water into your instant pot along with the garlic and salt, stirring to combine. Place the trivet into the pot and push it towards one side of the pot. Next, place the artichoke hearts inside as well, cut-side down.
Set the instant pot to sealing and cook for a while, until the artichokes are done. You will know they are done if you poke the bottoms with a knife and it slides in easily.
Serve as desired and DEVOUR!
Does the size of an Artichoke impact Cook Time?
The size of your artichoke may impact cook time, yes, so you will want to be sure that each of the artichokes are approximately the same size. You also may need to add on a couple minutes of cooking time for larger artichokes.
How to eat Artichokes
Although these instant pot artichokes are absolutely delicious all on their own, they are best served as a side dish! I recommend serving them up alongside some bacon wrapped chicken thighs or air fryer pork tenderloin with a side of purple mashed potatoes or roasted russet potatoes. Any way you decide to serve these artichoke hearts, they will be sure to be a hit!
