Instant Pot Artichokes

Prep Time: 20 minutes || Cook Time: 55 minutes || Total: 75 Minutes
Servings: 4 || Yields: 4 artichokes
Cut your cooking time to 1/4 with this instant pot steamed artichoke recipe


  • 2-4 Medium/Large Artichokes
  • 1 1/2 Cup water
  • 1/2 Cup Canola or Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Sea Salt (or 1 Tbsp Iodized salt)
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Bay Leaf


  1. Prepare your artichokes by slicing off the stem and top 1/2 to 1 inch. Trim the tips of each leaf about 1/16'' to remove the spiky end. gently pull apart to loosen the leaves.
  2. Mix water, oil, salt, garlic powder in the instant pot. Add the bay leaf
  3. Place the artichokes top down and cover with pressure seal on
  4. Manually set your instant pot to cook for 20 minutes
  5. When time is up, release the pressure then flip the artichokes top up.
  6. Ladle the liquid over the artichokes several times helping to open them and adding the flavor.
  7. Close lid and seal again for 10-15 minutes depending on size and quantity
  8. When timer beeps, allow the pressure to naturally release for 15-20 minutes then enjoy perfectly tender and flavored artichokes that require no dip! (ofc I won't judge you if you choose to dip in your favorite Aoili - I like Truffle or garlic! Lemon is a classic favorite for artichokes but this recipes flavor lends more to garlic)
