A fresh, ripe artichoke cooked perfectly will taste like the very essence of late spring. It’s more than worth the care and wait.
Ingredients
5 Spice Tofu Dip
  • ½ block tofu, medium-soft
  • 1 lime, ½ zest and fully juiced
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
Walnut Pesto Dip
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup torn basil
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Chili-Lime Butter Dip
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1-2 dried birdseye chili peppers
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
Instructions
Tofu dip
  1. Blend the ingredients together until smooth. Serve cold.
Walnut dip
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until desired consistency is reached. I like mine slightly chunky, but you can process it smoother if you prefer.
Chili lime dip
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, lightly toast the peppers for one minute. When the skin has just started to blister, add the butter and let melt. Remove from heat and add the lime juice and sriracha. Let sit for at least 10 minutes to steep, then remove the birdseye peppers and serve.
