Add fresh mint, dill and parsley to the cooked stuffed rice, mix and remove from the stove. Lay the vine leaves on the counter. If the leaves are small, you can make them by laying them large enough to cover 2 artichokes. Add the artichokes on the vine leaves. Put 2 tablespoons of the stuffing you cooked on the artichoke. Cover it with vine leaves again and make sure it sticks together with the leaves below. Spread the sliced ​​onions on the bottom of the pan where you will cook the artichokes.
