  3. Then, add the chopped garlic, Italian bread crumbs, Italian grated cheese, flaxseed meal, and olive oil to a bowl and mix.
  4. Add, water slowly just to make the stuffing slightly damp. You may not use the whole amount.
  5. Then make sure the leaves are open and start sprinkling the stuffing into the artichoke either by hand or with a small spoon, making sure that most leaves are stuffed.
Steaming Artichokes

  3. Finally, turn off and let them cool down for 15-20 minutes and serve….Enjoy!!!
