Recipe Information

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 45 Minutes

Ingredients:

Baby artichokes

Italian breadcrumbs (1 Tbsp. for every 3 baby artichokes)

Italian grated cheeses (1/2 the amount of breadcrumbs- IE If you use 3 Tbsp. breadcrumbs for 9 baby artichokes, you need 1-1/2 Tbsp. cheese for those 9 baby artichokes)

Black pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Clean and trim artichokes, removing tough outer leaves. Place in a bowl of cold water and lemon to prevent browning.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the proper amount of breadcrumbs and cheese based on the number of baby artichokes you have. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Mix together.
  3. Spread open the artichokes. Using a spoon, stuff the leaves with breadcrumb mixture.
  4. In a large pot, add one inch of water. Place a vegetable steamer basket and stand your stuffed artichokes upright in the basket. Top each one with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, cover the pot and bring the water to a boil.
  5. Once boiled, reduce heat to simmer and steam for 45 minutes to an hour or until a leaf pulls out easily. Serve warm or cold. The entire artichoke can be eaten.
