Dolmathes Gialantsi

1 cup rice

2 Large Onions - finely diced

2/3 cup Olive Oil

2 cups Water

2 Tbs Fresh Dill

2 Tbs Fresh Mint

2 Tbs Fresh Parsley

Salt & Pepper to taste

Juice of 2 lemons

30 prepared Grape Leaves (see blog)

2 Tbs Walnuts - roughly chopped

Put diced onions in a pot with just enough water to cover. Cook until the water evaporates.  Add 1/3 Cup of oil, walnuts,  dill, mint and parsley and Saute.  Add the rest of the oil and rice and saute and other 2 minutes.  Add 2 cups of water, and cook the rice until done.

Allow to cool and pour lemon juice over the mixture.

Get a prepared grape leaf and place the shiny surface of the leaf down.  Put some mixture onto the leaf and roll into a cigar shape.  Put the Dolmathes side by side in a dish and cook for 20 minutes.  

I like them hot, but they are traditionally eaten as a cold appetiser.

Enjoy.
