  • 1/4 Lb - Grated Grana Padano or Parmigiano Cheese
  • 2 Cloves finely chopped garlic
  • Fresh parsley
  • EV olive oil

  • Clean the artichokes by removing the harder outer leaves and cutting the stem and the top part of the leaves as they may have thorns.

In my famiglia we add anchovies.....YUM! a cab chopped stuffed here and there....drizzle the oil from the can over.....heaven!

Our family also mashes a few anchovies into the bread/cheese mixture for great flavor. We steam ours on a wire rack in a large covered pot on the stove until you can slip out a inner leaf. That's usually a little more than an hour cooking. Don't forget to dip some crusty bread in the broth that you just made, it's great!

The flavor should be good but the cooking time is off. You need to cook artichokes for at least one hour or more. Sometimes they are not cooked for a couple of hours in the oven. You need patience!

4 stars for the recipe, but the cooking time is off. My artichokes take well over an hour. Lately I have been using my pressure cooker to make sure they are very tender.
