  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mild herbs (basil, parsley, oregano, etc.)
  • Essence
  • 4 artichokes, boiled until tender and cleaned free of the choke
  • 1 cup garlic aioli
  • 2 lemons, cut in half


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, olive oil and herbs. Mix thoroughly. Season the mixture with Essence. Carefully pack the bread crumb mixture into all available spaces in the artichoke. Place the artichokes on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve the artichokes with a drizzle of garlic aioli and a squeeze of lemon juice. Yield: 4 servings
