  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • grape leaves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 cups vegetable stock (broth)
  • 2 bay leaves
  1. In a pan, heat up the butter and oil, add the spring onion, mushrooms and carrots and stir for about 5 minutes or until they are soft, and the water released by the mushrooms is evaporated.

  2. Rinse the rice with cold water, and add it to the pan, and mix everything well. Season with salt and pepper and remove the pan from the heat.

  3. Place about a tablespoon of the rice mixture in the middle of the grape leaf, then roll it tightly.

  4. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you use it up.

  5. Arrange the rolls in a pan, making sure they are close together.

  6. Place a pan on top of the rolls, to ensure they do not get unwrapped during cooking.

  7. Mix the vegetable stock with the tomato puree and bay leaves, then pour it over the rolls.

  8. Cook on a low to medium heat for about 30 minutes or until the rolls are cooked through.

  9. Serve hot.
