    This is a delicious morroccan recipe

    Stuffed Artichoke Hearts

    1.5 pounds ground meat/turkey
    1 bunch cillantro (cleaned, checked and finely chopped)
    1 large onions chopped very finely
    1T cumin
    salt to taste
    2T chicken soup mix
    2 eggs

    2 bags frozen artichoke hearts

    Mix the 1st set of ingredients and add the breadcrumbs until the mixture is firm enough to form;  then stuff the artichoke hearts with the meat mixture

    1 c flour
    2 eggs well beaten

    dip the stuffed artichoke into the eggs and then into the flour…
    fry in 1 inch oil until golden brown…set aside… (they will not be fully cooked)

    In a deep pan sautee 2 large onions, thinly sliced and 3 potatoes, peeled and also thinly sliced in 1/4th a cup of oil
    place the stuffed artichokes on the bed of onions and potatoes

    sprinkle tumeric, cumin and salt over the stuffed artichokes and pour 2 cups of water over them

    cook on a low flame untill the meat is firm

    The dish is now technically ready, My family doesnt like the taste of lemons so I dont usually do  the rest of the recipe but i you do like lemon, then try this: 

    in a bowl, mix 2 eggs with the juice from 3 lemons  
    pour this mixture over the artichoke hearts and cook for another 10 minutes…..
    serve over cous cous

    Thank you so much for your recipe, Malka. How do you stuff the meat mixture into the frozen artichoke hearts? It seems like quite a feat to stuff, bread, fry, then bake them, but it must be delicious!

    I will enter your recipe in my April contest, which is all about Artichokes!
