Aleia's Gluten Free Stuffed Artichokes

4 large artichokes, stems removed
¼ cup ripe pitted Calamata olives, chopped
¼ cup chopped parsley
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
1 cup Aleia’s Plain Bread Crumbs or 1 cup Aleia’s Italian Bread Crumbs (you do not need to use garlic if using the Italian Bread Crumbs)
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil to drizzle

With a serrated knife cut tops of artichokes approximately 1/4 inch below the top. Using sharp scissors snip off pointed tips of each artichoke petal. In a 5 quart pan place approximately two inches of water and set on stove top. In a bowl combine, olives, parsley, garlic, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese salt and pepper. Spread each petal as wide as allowed and stuff artichokes. Place in pan, drizzle olive oil over each artichoke. Cover and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook 55-60 minutes until tender and leaves pull freely from the artichoke.

Serves 4

Even Gluten Eaters Love to Eat Aleia's!

Nichol Haskins, author of the blog Kiddies Corner Deals, cannot imagine living with food allergies. We liked Nichol's blog because of her focus on FAMILY FRIENDLY products. Her kids are at a great age as well; perfect official cookie testers! When our paths crossed in cyberspace, we wanted to take a moment to show her how great our products are to work with, eat, and enjoy (even though she can shop without restrictions). I partnered with Nichol and sent her a care package for Aleia's products. In exchange, she gave us a great review on her awesome blog!

Thank you Nichol for taking time out of your day to taste and review our gluten-free products! Keep up the great work and congratulations on the success of your blog.

Look for a giveaway on Kiddies Corners Deals in the near future!
