Culinary and Glamorous: these Stuffed Artichokes are a Real Treat

MB 09-09-2019
Ingredients:
1 serving cooked ham
1 serving vegetables (artichokes and mushrooms)
1 lemon
spices & herbs: salt, freshly ground pepper, freshly chopped parsley
olive oil or coconut oil

Preparation:
Remove the scale-like leaves from the artichoke and break off the stalk. This requires a little effort, but please do not cut it off, as the inedible fibers will be removed from the bottom by the breaking (it’s also called “hay”). Cut off the upper first third and remove the middle leaves, now you can remove the inedible “hay” (with small artichokes you have very little of it).  Place the cleaned artichokes immediately in lemon water.
Cut ham and mushrooms into small cubes and sauté in oil, season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan, add parsley, fill artichokes and place in a pot with some oil. Cover and cook at low heat for about 35-45 minutes, pour some water over the filling from time to time to prevent it from drying out.
