1 With a large chef's knife, finely chop the artichoke stems. Mix the stems in a large bowl with the bread crumbs, parsley, cheese, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Add a little oil and toss to moisten the crumbs evenly. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
2 Gently spread the leaves apart. Lightly stuff the center of the artichokes with the bread crumb mixture, also adding a little stuffing between the leaves. Do not pack the stuffing in.
3 Stand the artichokes in a pot just wide enough to hold them upright. Add water to a depth of 3/4 inch around the artichokes. Drizzle the artichokes with 3 tablespoons olive oil.
4 Cover the pot and place it over medium heat. When the water comes to a simmer, reduce the heat to low. Cook about 40 to 50 minutes (depending on the size of the artichokes) or until the artichoke bottoms are tender when pierced with a knife and a leaf pulls out easily. Add additional warm water if needed to prevent scorching. Serve warm or at room temperature.
