Stuffed Artichokes
Servings: 5 Prep 25 mins Slow Cook 4 hrs on HIGH

Ingredients

  • 5 globe artichokes
  • 2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest plus 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup white wine

Make It

1. With a very sharp knife, cut top third off each artichoke. Trim stems to 1/4 to 1/2 inch. With scissors or kitchen shears, snip off pointed tips of remaining leaves. Gently pry open leaves of artichokes.

2. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan, pine nuts, parsley, garlic, lemon zest and juice and butter. Stir until well combined.

3. Hold one of the artichokes over bowl with stuffing mixture. With a large spoon, press stuffing into center of artichoke and into spaces in between leaves, packing as tightly as possible. Repeat with all artichokes.

4. Combine wine with 1 cup water in a 5-quart slow cooker. Place artichokes in slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 4 hours. Use a large spoon to carefully remove artichokes to a platter. Garnish with additional Parmesan. To eat, pull a leaf from artichoke and scrape between teeth to remove stuffing and soft part of leaf at base.

Tip

For easy cleanup:
  • Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
