Artichokes (Roasted) and Chili-Spiced 'Mayo'

Category: Appetizers and Dips



Suitable for a: vegan diet





Ingredients:

------------------------------------------------------



1 large artichoke

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

4 very coarsely chopped garlic cloves

1 1/2 cups water

3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise

1/2 tsp hot sauce (optional)

1/4 cup enchilada sauce

juice of one lime (about 2 tbsp)

dash cayenne (optional)

1/2 tsp chili powder (or chipotle powder if you can find it, not sure how easy it is to find)





Instructions:

------------------------------------------------------



Use scissors to trim sharp tips off artichoke leaves.



Place artichoke in water in a pan, and bring water to a boil.



Cover, reduce heat slightle and allow to steam for 15 - 30 minutes.



Remove artichoke from pot, place in baking pan and drizzle with olive oil, garlic and salt. Stuff garlic clove pieces between leaves.



Bake artichoke in 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, until soft. (Probably at least another 30 min)



Meanwhile, blend together mayonnaise, hot sauce, enchilada sauce, lime, cayenne and chili or chipotle powder until well mixed.



When artichoke is done cooking, allow to cool slightly.



To eat, pull leaves from the artichoke, dip in chipotle sauce, scrape soft flesh from leaves with your teeth, discard hard part of leaf.



Enjoy!



Serves one as a light supper or two as a great appetizer to 'share'.

Now I just have to wait for artichokes to go on sale! I never have vegan mayo, do you think I could use a soft or silken tofu instead?

I'd use a recipe for homemade tofu mayo and add the seasonings to it.
