Ingredients

  • 6 artichokes, washed, tops sliced off and stemms trimmed
  • 1 Cup whole-grain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup grated, reduced-fat parmesan cheese
  • 1 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Combine bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Spread artichoke leaves and fill pockets generously with mixture.

Place artichokes in the slow cooker and add about an inch of water to the bottom. Drizzle olive oil over the artichokes. Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 5 to 6 hours, until the leaves are tender.

Artichoke Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Artichoke Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals. Root vegetables, however, should be slowly braised or boiled for in order to ensure their inside is cooked as well as their outside.
