Stuffed Grapevine Leaves
Adapted from Betty Crocker’s International Cookbook recipe by the same name on page 165.
Place about 1 tablespoon of meat (lamb or beef) mixture on doubled leaves and wrap, place in skillet, seam side down.
Using my Kitchenaid Mixer,, i whip the eggs and add the organic lemon juice.
Pour the egg mixture over the stuffed grapevine leaves.
Here are the alternative meatballs only – better for people who have difficulty chewing.
As soon in the spring that i can source good veggies, i start making my Israeli Salad. I eat a whole batch nearly everyday that i can through the growing season until the veggies get yucky again.
My recipe is simple:
1 green pepper chopped
1 tomato chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cucumber chopped
2 tablespoons dried cilantro or parsley (double that if using fresh)
1 teaspoon Real salt (double this if you are sweating a lot and need salt)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
Stir it all up. As with most veggies and fruits – room temperature is best for lovely flavours.
