Vegetarian Mushroom and Brown Rice Dolmas


40-50 grape leaves
1 cup uncooked brown rice (soaked in water for 1 hour)
800g mushrooms (I used Portobello)
1 onion
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 tsp paprika powder
sea salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste
1 tsp dry thyme
3 bay leaves
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ginger powder
2 tbsp olive oil


Go to my blog for the full instructions:


First of all let me tell you what dolmas are . Dolmas are grape leaves traditionally stuffed with a mixture of rice and meat and then cooked. They are a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean specialty and are served as appetizers. The vegetarian ones are usually served cold and the ones with meat warm.
I prefer them warm and served as a main dish with a tasty sauce on top. If you are vegan you can try a tomato based sauce and if you are vegetarian some sour cream (+ garlic - optional) on top will make these dolmas just perfect.
