Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the onions in a bowl with water and let them stand for 10 minutes. Wash them well and drain.
  2. Wash and drain the rice.
  3. Add in a bowl the rice, onions, the herbs, the seasonings and 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  4. Rinse the leaves under running water and blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes.
  5. Place 1 leave on a counter, shiny side down and add 1 teaspoon of the rice filling. Roll but let it loose a lot, because the rice will expand. Continue with all the other leaves.
  6. Place the dolmathes in a saucepan and add 2 cups of warm water. Add a pinch of salt, and the olive oil. Let it boil and reduce the heat to low. After 10 minutes add 1/2 cup of water and the lemon juice. Simmer for 30 minutes more.
  7. Serve cold as an appetizer or as a full vegan dinner with a salad.
  8. Nice served with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top.
