Stuffed Artichokes in the InstantPot

Print Friendly and PDF

This is another recipe I never thought I would make until I met my husband! His family is all about stuffed artichokes.  I've never gotten their specific recipes, but I've tried many and this is my adaptation of how we like them.  I love them full of garlic and cheese. Yum! Makes a great appetizer for Italian night or pizza night at your house. Give it a go! 


  • 2-3 large artichokes or 4 small/medium 

  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese 

  • 1/4 italian breadcrumbs

  • 2 cups parmesan grated finely  

  • 2 tsp pepper

  • 2 tbsp garlic powder 

  • Olive oil to drizzle on top 

  • Lemon to squeeze on top 

  • 1 1/2 cups water for the pot 

  • 8 cloves of garlic chopped up to go in the bottom of the pot 


  • Mix together the cheese and seasonings- use your hands! It will mix it better than a spoon will 

  • Spread out the artichokes and stuff as much as you can on each leaf 

  • Put 1 1/2 cups water in your Instant Pot and put the trivet inside 

  • Place the artichokes close together 

  • Close the lid and seal it

  • Use the manual cooking mode and put it on high pressure for 20 minutes

  • You will have tender, soft artichokes- if you like them a little firmer, don't cook as long
