A mayonnaise sauce with a little different twist. I was surprised and pleased to find that the typical seasonings in curries work so well with artichokes. Hope you enjoy this. (Low fat mayo works fine in this recipe, but bottled lemon juice doe not - use fresh squeezed) Note: the sauce is highly seasoned. If you wish a milder sauce, reduce all spices to half.
- 2 large artichokes
- 3⁄4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (fresh, not bottled)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1⁄4 teaspoon powdered ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- Trim artichokes and remove chokes. May cut in half to make 4 servings, or leave whole. Place over simmering water and steam until tender.
- Combine all remainging ingredients and chill while artichokes are cooking.
- To serve, offer small bowls of sauce, and a bowl for discarding tough parts of leaves. Makes 2 entree servings or 4 side servings.
A great artichoke dipping sauce! I often just mix mayo with lemon juice and whatever seasonings sound good. I've used curry powder many times before, but this combination of spices was really well balanced. The dill was a really nice touch too! I don't use low-fat condiments, so used regular mayonnaise. I also replaced the lemon with fresh squeezed lime juice as I realized I was out of lemon. It was good this way, but I think I would prefer it with lemon juice. Next time! Oh, and I started out with 1/2 the seasonings but found it too mild and then added just about as much as was recommended in the recipe.
