  • Pressure Cooker
  • Steaming Rack


  • 3 Medium-sized artichokes
  • Water see recipe notes
  • 3 Lemon slices
  • Desired toppings


  • Prepare the artichokes for cooking by removing the stem and slicing off the top. Use kitchen scissors to snip off the tips of each leaf.
  • Place the steamer rack into the bottom of the instant pot and pour the required amount of water inside. Drop a few lemon slices into the water and place the artichokes, stem side down, onto the rack.
  • Replace the lid and seal it properly. Move the valve to the “sealing” position to prepare for pressure cooking.
  • Cook on High Pressure for 20 minutes and quickly release the pressure when done.
  • Serve immediately with desired toppings.
