Vegetarian Stuffed Grape Leaves
|Title:||Vegetarian Stuffed Grape Leaves|
4 bunches parsley
2 bunches green onions or 1 large regular white onion
3 pounds tomatoes
10 ounces white rice (uncooked)
5 ounces light olive oil
4 ounces lemon juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 jar canned grape leaves
After chopping the parsley, onions and tomatoes very fine, mix in the rice, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Wash the grape leaves well. Open each leaf and start stuffing.
Roll the leaf around the stuffing (not to tight and not to loose) and put them in a pot. Slice one tomato and put in the bottom of the pot to prevent leaves from sticking (or use any leftover torn grape leaves to line the bottom of the pot). After rolling all the leaves, take any juice left from the mixture into the pot as well.
Bring to a boil, then reduce temperature to low. They are done when rice and grape leaves are tender. Let leaves cool to room temperature before serving.
