“I took this recipe out of my slow cooker recipe book. I like artichokes stuffed as well, but these plain artichokes were just simple and delicious. I served this with a tomato, mozzarella, green olive, basil, crouton, green leaf lettuce salad. Sprinkled a tiny bit of olive oil over the salad and enjoyed this with the artichoke. This makes a lovely lunch. One can dip the tender leaves in melted butter if desired. Hope you enjoy it too!”
