Artichoke bottoms filled with veggies are a marvel, so healthy and filling, the very best part of an artichoke!
Artichoke is a fountain of vitamins and minerals and so nourishing, in general, 2 per person are enough as they are so filling…
They are delicious simply with mayo but I like to serve them filled, either cold with a tuna filling for example or hot and filled with vegs.
I live in Southern France and over here, you can find them all year round frozen.

Candied fruit quick bread is light and fruity, with mixed flavors in each bite, delicious!
Lately, I have been visiting a Russian fair with my girlfriend Monica, and among the exhibits there was this stand offering so many beautiful and meaty candied fruits of the best quality. I had to buy some, but what to do with it…
Stuffed cabbage … Basically, meatballs into a cabbage leaf! I love meatballs, don’t you ? Such a versatile dish; My recipe will always vary according to the vegetables and herbs I’ve got in my fridge : with pepper and sprouts, I will make Asian style meatballs, with zucchinis and tomatoes, I will make Italian style meatballs and so on.
I always add grated carrots, chopped onions and mushrooms to my meatballs since either or several of them are a basis in many of my recipes and so are tomatoes, so I try to never run out of any of them.
Of course, there is a wide range of vegetables that you could use instead of cabbage, like peppers, tomatoes, zucchinis, etc.
