Picture of Stuffed grape leaves (dolmades) taste better than they look!
Grape leaves provide a unique flavor, and stuffing them with some simple ingredients provides for some delicious snacks, hors d'Suvres, or (with the right compliments) even a meal!

This recipe was inspired by Tyler Florence, however I changed up the last part.

Be forewarned, this is a time consuming, labor intensive process. The result however is delicious, and well worth the effort.
Set aside half an afternoon (2-3 hours)

Step 1: You will need...

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 small fennel bulb
  • 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 1/2 cup stock
  • 2 tablespoons dill leaves
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar grape leaves, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (additionally) stock
  • 1/4 cup (additionally) extra-virgin olive oil

I just printed this recipe out and look forward to making it. My father in-law will be very pleased. He told me if I ever make it make sure it's the sweet and sour recipe. Thanks for such detail.
