(Re-blog)The legend of the artichoke — Cerise Chérie

Many stuffed artichoke recipes call for leaving the choke intact while stuffing and cooking. That doesn’t make sense to me, as there’s so much more space for the stuffing when this inedible part is removed. It’s an extra step, but 100% worth the effort. I start by steaming the artichokes, just long enough to be able to peel back the petals and remove the choke. The resulting cavity is stuffed with breadcrumbs, salty feta, oregano and fresh lemon. The artichokes finish cooking in the oven. These stuffed artichokes are so large and savory, it’s a meal in itself.
