Stuffed Artichokes in Olive Oil
6-8 artichokes, peeled, cleaned, see Artichokes with Rice in Olive Oil
1/4 cup sweet peas, frozen
1 small carrot, peeled, cut in cubes
1 small potato, peeled, cut in cubes
50 ml + 25 ml extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup water

Fresh parsley or fresh dill, chopped

Place artichokes in a large shallow pan. Arrange the vegetables between the artichokes. Add 50 ml olive oil, lemon juice, sugar and salt. Cover and cook for about 15-20 minutes over medium heat until all the vegetables and artichokes are cooked.

Let the dish cool down first. Then place artichokes on a large serving dish. Place some of the vegetables on top of the artichokes. Drizzle 25 ml olive oil and garnish with parsley or dill. Serve Stuffed Artichokes in Olive Oil at room temperature with lemon wedges.
