(Stuffed vine leaves)
1 packet of pre-packed vine leaves
1 large onion
2 cups rice
2 tblspns dill
salt & pepper
1 cup oil
Boil vine leaves for 3-4mins, leave to cool
Grate or finely chop onion, add rice, dill, seasoning & oil & mix together. Put vine leaf flat in the palm of your hand. Place a teaspoon of rice mixture in the centre. Fold ends of leaf over the filling & roll it up. Cover the bottom of a saucepan with the filled leaves side by side in layers. Sprinkle with lemon juice, a little oil & some stock. Place a plate on top of the dolmades to prevent them from splitting open, cover & simmer for about 1 hour. Top up with more stock if necessary.
The same mixture can be used to stuff vegetables.
