Prepare the artichokes by plucking off the bottom outer leaves of the artichoke down by the stem.I usually end up removing up to 6 to 8 leaves.
Laying it on it’s sides, cut off the bottom of the stem and the trim off the top 1/3 of the artichoke.
Working your way around, trim the tips off all of the leaves.They’re pointed and a little prickly so we want to cut the top 1/4 to 1/2 inch off of each leaf.
Cut the artichoke in half working from the stem up through the top of the artichoke.
Remove the choke in the middle.To do this, use a large spoon and scrape out the fuzzy parts and everything in the middle that aren’t the leaves.Rub all around the cut edges with a lemon wedge to prevent browning.
Drizzle the cut sides of the artichokes with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.Rub everything in with your hands and place them, cut side down, into your air fryer.
Air fry for 12 to 15 minutes, flipping halfway.
To make the sauce, whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl and dip the artichoke leaves in and enjoy.
