Artichoke Casserole

10 Fresh artichokes

1/2 lb. Ground lean veal meat

1/4 cup Chopped onions

3 tablespoons Pine nuts

Lemon juice

Salt, pepper and cinnamon

Vegetable oil

Take out all the thick leaves around the artichoke. Cut the top horizontally, cut the base too. With a tablespoon remove the hairy center, making a well in the center.

Do the same thing with the rest, putting them in a pan filled with water and 1/4 cup lemon juice when you finish each one, in order to preserve its color.

With one tablespoon butter, stir the meat, onions and pine nuts till brown. Add the seasoning.

Fry the drained artichoke with 5 tablespoons vegetable oil till slightly brown. Drain.

Arrange in pan, pour in it a cup of water and 1/4 cup lemon juice. Adjust the seasoning.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes till they are tender. Serve with rice and green mixed salad.
