Equipment

  • Stove

Ingredients
  

  • 3 scallions chopped
  • 1 tomato finely diced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin, divided
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint chopped, optional
  • 40 grape leaves canned or jarred
  • water for boiling
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • In a medium pan, heat the scallions and tomatoes in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil for 2 minutes.
  • Add rice, water, salt, dill, parsley, and mint. Stir well then cover the pan and cook for approximately 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • Carefully lay out a grape leaf. Place approximately 2 large teaspoons into the middle of each leaf nearer to the stem. Fold the bottom up and then the sides and then roll. Continue until you have filled 24 leaves.
  • Place the extra or torn leaves into the bottom of a large pan. Gently place each filled leaf inside. Then add just enough water to cover the leaves. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over all the leaves and bring to a slow simmer.
  • Cook for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve.
