Here I show you how to make these deliciously simple baked and stuffed globe artichokes. They’re full of flavoursome Italian herbs, olive oil and parmigiana. And perfect if you’ve grown plenty on your allotment.
If you’re in the market for trying something new, then a globe artichoke should be high on your list! They’re so beautiful too, like a flower ready to bloom.
But don’t be confused with Jerusalem artichokes. I rang a farm shop a couple of weeks ago and asked them if they had any in and as soon as I turned up, I realised we hadn’t been on the same page.
But I bought them anyway, as I’ll be trying them too. (I heard they make great chips!)
HOW EASY ARE GLOBE ARTICHOKES TO COOK?
And the beauty of this recipe is that it’s easy-peasy with hardly any effort and it’s fun to pick off one stuffed leaf at a time!
All you need is some artichokes, bread crumbs, herbs, seasoning and some authentic Italian extra virgin olive oil mixed with parmigiana.
