Stuffed Artichokes

Basic ingredients:
Serves 4

- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Pecorino-Romano Cheese
- 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder - salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 artichokes
- 2 cloves of garlic, sliced


  • Combine bread crumbs, Pecorino-Romano Cheese, parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a medium bowl. Mix together well.
  • Cut stems off artichokes, flush with bottom. Cut pointy leaves off the top of the artichokes. Spread leaves of each artichoke out and push stuffing in between them.
  • In a pot just large enough to fit the artichokes, add the sliced garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the artichokes. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the top of the artichokes.
  • Turn heat on to medium and cook until sizzling about 1-2 minutes. Add water to reach half way up the sides of the artichokes.
  • Cover and cook until the artichokes are tender and a leaf is easily pulled out, about 45 minutes. If liquid is evaporating too quickly add a little more water.
  • Transfer to a serving platter, drizzle a little of the liquid from the pot over the artichokes and serve.
