We’re crazy for artichokes, but we’re sure you all agree. We’re also crazy for Vegenaise when we get the hankering for a little indulgence, or want to bring a delicious dish to that summer potluck. We love Vegenaise because, not only is it vegan and gluten-free, it’s non-GMO. We checked their website, just to make sure:
Artichokes With Gluten-Free Lemon Vegenaise
1/2 cup Vegenaise
Juice of 1 lemon, divided.
Zest from 1/2 a lemon
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
Pinch of sea salt
To prepare the artichokes:
Boil 4 cups of water.
Wash and cut off stems, if present, then trim off the sharp ends from the leaves. Dip the cut parts in half of the lemon juice to avoid discoloration. Stand the artichokes in a deep stainless steel or enamel pan and pour boiling water over them, about 3 inches deep. Cover and boil them for 35-45 minutes, until tender when easily pierced with a fork.
In a mixer, mix the Vegenaise, juice of 1/2 lemon, lemon pepper, dried basil and sea salt. Until well blended.
Serve with artichokes.
This recipe is so good, that we won’t blame if you if you double it!
