Dolmades, or dolma or sarma, are a typical Middle East dish made with some vegetable rolled up around a filling. Dolmades are one of typical Greek mezedes and one of my favorite dishes when I visit Greece. There are many different types of filling. There is vegetarian version, with pine nuts and raisin. The most common one is with grape leaves, and the filling consisting of rice, minced meat and herbs. Even here, there is who use to cook the rice before, and who doesn’t. I decided to go by the best Dolmades I tasted in Greece. So, the recipe I’m posting is with rice and meat, seasoned with herbs, quickly cooked in a pan and then rolled up inside the leaves and cooked in a pot.
2 important things: grape leaves should be tender and organic (thanks to Caterina’s dad, who brought me these beautiful leaves from Cilento), and you shoulg roll up the leaves very thightly and then put tight to each other in the pot, or they will open up during cooking. If you don’t find any fresh grape leave, bigger supermarket usually have blanched ones 😉
I leave you to the recipe and go back to the kitchen: I have to use zucchini and eggplants! Kisses :-*
