These stuffed grape leaves are a delicious, light, and healthy treat, with a tasty combination of vegetables and rice steamed in a savory lemon and olive oil broth. They are excellent for outdoor parties, the beach, or as a poolside snack.


Specialty Ingredients

  • Grape leaves, which can be found at specialty markets or online packed brined in jars; or fresh, tender grape leaves off the vine.


Prepare Ahead

The rolled filled grape leaves can be frozen (uncooked) for up to 2 months. Freeze on a plastic-lined tray uncovered, then store them in an airtight container. Thaw and cook as directed.
