Slow cookers are for so much more than starchy, fat-filled casseroles and soups: they’re also for elegant appetizers and side dishes for that fancy dinner party you’re hosting but don’t have enough time to prep for. Expand your slow cooker horizons with this easy and scrumptious artichoke dish.


  • 1 cup whole-grain bread crumbs
  • ½ cup grated, reduced-fat Parmesan cheese
  • 1 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 6 artichokes, washed, tops sliced off and stems trimmed
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil


1. Combine bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Spread artichoke leaves and fill pockets generously with mixture until.

2. Place artichokes in the slow cooker and add about an inch of water to the bottom. Drizzle olive oil over the artichokes. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 5-6 hours, until the leaves are tender.
