Rita's Stuffed Artichokes
Recipe type: Baked
Serves: 5
  • 5 large tender artichokes
  • 500g new baby potatoes
  • 100g freshly shelled peas
  • 100g freshly shelled broad beans
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp parsley, chopped
  • Pepper
  1. Remove old and loose leaves form the artichokes. With a sharp knife, cut off the stalk (this will be used later) and remove the fibrous skin. Slice off about 2cm from the top of the artichoke.
  2. Make the filling by mixing bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and pepper. Place an artichoke in your hands and shake the leaves loose with your thumbs. Place stuffing between the leaves.
  3. In a large saucepan, place the artichokes upright in the centre. Add potatoes around the artichokes. Put broad beans, peas and artichoke stalks on the top and sprinkle with remaining stuffing. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the top and fill the pan with water - enough to cover the artichokes.
  5. Bring to the boil and then reduce heat to low, and cook uncovered for about 1 hour. Do not stir, just shake occasionally.
  6. Serve with fresh crusty bread.
