To start, we are going to need fresh artichokes. When picking artichokes, you want to select ones that have tight, closed leaves. Think of it like buying roses — if you buy ones with a tight bud, it has lots of life left, and is not on the tail end of its glory. You also want artichokes that feel heavy, which indicates that they are meaty and not dried out. While you are in the produce aisle, you will also want to grab lemons, garlic, and Italian parsley. Additionally, you will need some butter, Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. If you want to make these delicious stuffed artichokes dairy-free, you are in luck, since there are many options available for dairy-free butter and vegan Parmesan.
