- Remove the toughest leaves from the artichokes and cut off the tips and stem a little so that they can stand up straight. Then put them in a pot with the water, salt and lemon juice and cook them for 15 minutes to soften. After this time, put them in a strainer to release all the water.
- Preheat the oven to 185ºC and, meanwhile, grease a baking dish with a little oil, place the well-drained artichokes on it and open them a little to stuff them.
- Fill each of the artichokes with a teaspoon of vegan sobrassada and, on this, put a teaspoon of creamy potato cheese and spread it a little over the entire surface of the artichoke. When all the artichokes are stuffed, place the baking dish in the oven at medium height and cook them au gratin for between 6 or 10 minutes, until they are slightly brown, being careful not to burn them. When they are au gratin, take them out of the oven and serve them.
