Dolmas

12 servings

1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1 cup long grain rice
1 1/4 cups olive oil
1 cup small dice yellow onion
3/4 cup minced scallions
1/4 cup minced parsley
2 tablespoons minced fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
16 ounces prepared grape leaves
3/4 cup strained fresh lemon juice
1 cup heated vegetable stock
fresh parsley sprig


Toast pine nuts in a heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently about 5 minutes, until golden. Cool. Wash rice in cold water and drain. Heat 3 T olive oil in a saute pan over medium high heat. Add yellow onion and saute until just soft. Transfer to a large bowl; add rice, 1/2 cup olive oil, green onions, parsley, mint, pine nuts, cinnamon, allspice, salt and pepper. Rinse the grape leaves under cold water to remove the brine; pat dry and stack on a plate. Place one leaf at a time, shiny side down, on a flat surface. Cut off and discard stem. Spoon 1 T of rice mixture at the base of each leaf. Fold stem end over to cover mixture; fold sides in and roll tightly to form a small, tight packet. Repeat with each leaf. Add about 2 T olive oil to a large pot; add a layer of parsley stems to keep grape leaves from sticking. Layer the dolmas, seam side down and nearly touching, in the pot. Drizzle remaining oil, lemon juice and 1/2 cup broth over dolmas. Lay a plate into the pot weighted down to keep the dolmas from unrolling. Cover the pot, bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat and cook about 1 hour, until rice is tender. During cooking, add a little heated liquid as needed to keep dolmas moist. Remove from heat and cool in the pot. Sprinkle with lemon juice to taste, garnish with lemon zest, and serve at room temperature. Makes about 50 dolmas; serves 12 to 15. Well covered, dolmas will keep for a week or longer in the refrigerator; bring to room temperature and refresh with a squeeze of lemon before serving. Versions of this appetizer are served in Greece and throughout the Middle East
