How to Stuff Grape Leaves

Dolmades or Stuffed Grape Leaves are similar to a cabbage roll, but it uses grape leaves packed in brine instead of cabbage as the outer layer. I have made this very low carb, so enjoy!

1

Brown your ground meat (I used pork) with your seasonings. I use chicken buillion powder in lieu of salt, fish sauce, ginger and a little bit of soy. Add your cabbage and cook it down.

2

Add your greens and wilt them (spinach or arugula) and lastly green onions & salsa (I use cooked salsa as it's already seasoned) or diced, canned tomatoes.

Browned, seasoned ground meat. Next, add diced, canned tomatoes or salsa and cooked quinoa.  (Note: tomatoes in a can eat away at the plastic lining so I try to avoid them.)

Put a cm of chicken broth in the bottom and heat it up at 350deg or just heat as you go. (I even eat them cold!)

NOTE: I like lots of veggies so I make this to be 1/3 meat and 2/3 veggies and quinoa. You can adjust to your liking. And I use quinoa as I try to avoid eating food that's white (refined). ENJOY!
