 STUFFED GRAPE LEAVES


6 SERVINGS

Many Lebanese dishes consist of stuffed vegetables. Sometimes there is meat in the filling, and at other times the filling is vegetarian. We have replaced whole lamb with ground lamb. The same filling is used for stuffed zucchini. In the photo, you see ghammeh, a type of sausage that is filled with a similar rice blend.

Ingredients

ABOUT 1⅕ CUPS (225 G) SHORT- GRAIN RICE

ABOUT 1½ POUNDS (650 G) GROUND LAMB

OPTIONAL: TWO TOMATOES ABOUT 2 POUNDS (900 G) GRAPE LEAVES (OR SMALL ZUCCHINI) POTATOES

BEEF BROTH LEMON JUICE

how to prepare

1. Mix the rice with ground lamb. You can also add some chopped tomatoes.

2. Put some filling in the center of each leaf (or inside the hollowed-out, small zucchini) and roll into a finger-thick dolma.

3. Place the dolmas (or zucchini) in a pot whose bottom is covered with potato slices. Pour broth over the dolmas until they are covered, and squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top. Place a weight on top so that the dolmas don’t open up, and boil over medium heat until the rice is cooked.
