Slow cookers originated in the United States, but over the last few years the use of them is spreading around the world.  This recipe for Slow Cooker Artichoke Vegetable Stew with Egg Lemon Sauce (Artichokes A La Polita) from On Top of Spaghetti comes from Greece, where Eleni is having fun using her slow cooker to adapt traditional Greek dishes.  Eleni uses potatoes and carrots to make a vegetable stew with frozen artichoke hearts, which she says she'd add part way through the cooking time next time so the artichokes stay a little firmer.  I'm a huge fan of Greek Egg Lemon Sauce, and I also love artichokes, so I'm thinking this sounds like a deliciously satisfying Meatless Monday dinner.
