Serves: 24
  • 2 medium organic onions, finely chopped
  • 24 leaves grape leaves (~ 1 8 oz jar)
  • 4 tbsp. pine nuts
  • 24 oz. ground New Zealand lamb
  • 1 tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • ⅔ c. organic long grain brown rice, dry
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ c. spring water
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  1. Mix the lamb, onions rice, pine nuts, salt pepper and mint in a bowl until combined well. Carefully open each grape leaf, placing the rib-side down onto work surface. Place 1 rounded tablespoon of the meat mixture into the center of the grape leaf. Fold the bottom of the leaf over the meat, fold in the sides, and roll tight into a cylinder. Place the rolled grape leaf into a large skillet, seam side down. Repeat with remaining grape leaves, packing them in a tight, single layer. Pour the water into the pan and simmer until the rice is tender and the meat cooked—about 50-55 minutes. Drain water and serve.
