How to make stuffed artichokes
Mix together bread crumbs, garlic, cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper.
Stir into ricotta until well combined.
- 4 artichokes or 1 per person
- 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley
- 1 T olive oil
- 2 T butter
- 2 T lemon juice
- salt and pepper
- Mix together bread crumbs, garlic, cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper.
- Stir into ricotta until well combined.
- Wash and trim your artichokes by slicing off the stem and the tops and removing as much of the choke as you can with a spoon..
- After trimming, place in a bowl of water and lemon juice to keep them from browning.
- Then, stuff as much of the filling as you can in between the petals and in the center.
- Drizzle with oil and steam in a large pot with a steamer basket for 30 -45 minutes, or until a knife goes through the center with little resistance. Place in a baking sheet, drizzle melted butter over the tops and place under a broiler for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
I've never attempted stuffed artichokes, JodieMo, but your photos make it look very do-able. Thanks!

The hubs loves stuffed artichokes and last time I made them, which is a few years ago now, I failed BIG time and haven't wanted to make them since, I might just have to suck it up and give these a try!

Great recipe I'm bookmarking this one. Our splurge is fresh seafood, since we live in a landlocked land and it's quite expensive unfortunately.

THIS looks SOOOOO GOOD. I hope you get your goat and clothes line soon. =)
That looks wonderful. I love artichokes. I only tried to make them once and it didn't come out that well. I have to try this recipe.

wow, those look fantastic! artichokes have amazing flavor and i love it when they pop up in dishes.
I love artichokes too… and my entire family! My next post will be with artichokes. Please come and visit!
Have made stuffed artichokes for years but never with ricotta.. I like the idea. I'm making them this Sunday for company..seriously thinking of using your recipe. Will let you know. BTW I put a little broth at the bottom of the pot and it adds extra flavor and moisture to the artichokes. Thanks. N
Jodie:I must be truthful… most cooks think that when it comes to a dish they have made for years esp. a recipe that has been passed down, their recipe has to be the best. Well, I'm humbled…your recipe is wonderful. Ricotta in the stuffing was not something I'm familiar with, now it's the only way I will make my artichoke stuffing! Brava, Jodie. I still recommend some broth at the bottom of the pot, so you can baste the artichokes. I also made only three with the amount of ingredients you suggested because I stuff almost every leaf! May I post your recipe on my blog with pictures I've taken? Of course, I will give you the kudos. A most impressed food blogger…N PS: Your site gives me a bit of a hard time..scrolling is very slow and it froze…could you be kind enough to email the recipe to me at [email protected] (just the text..no pictures)
40-some years ago, just couldn’t find artichokes in small-town-Indiana. But we loved them prior to moving back here from AZ. My 3-year-old daughter woke from her nap on Thanksgiving day and threw a fit, refusing to eat our feast, because all she wanted was artichokes. She simply couldn’t understand our small-town grocery not selling her very favorite food. LOL Luckily, they’re now easily available here, and I fix them for my great-grandkids. Your recipe look fabulous!
I would so love to try this recipe but I cannot find fresh artichokes, around here they all look rather withered.
I can’t always find them either. I can sometimes find them for a good price at Sam’s Club or Costco. When I do find them and they look fresh and don’t cost $3 each, I splurge and treat myself. 🙂

My mother made stuffed artichoke similar to yours except she used cream cheese not ricotta and she added nutmeg (I think) and she added water to the pot and had them cook for over an hour and the water contained olive oil and garlic and the stems of the artichoke. It was delicious. Can’t wait to try your recipe.
