Stuffed Grape Leaves Casserole (serves
If you like stuffed grape leaves, you’ll love this
casserole, which has all the flavors of the
bite-size appetizers without all the rolling. You
don’t have to parboil jarred grape leaves, but a
quick dip in boiling water tenderizes them and
removes some of their saltiness.
30 jarred or fresh grape leaves
2 Tbs. olive oil, plus more for brushing top
of casserole and casserole dish
1 large onion, finely diced (2 cups)
1 cup brown rice
2 cups low-sodium tomato juice or vegetable
1 cup chopped unsalted, hulled pistachios
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 cup chopped fresh mint
1 cup raisins or dried currants
¼ cup lemon juice
1 lemon, sliced, for garnish
Pomegranate molasses, for drizzling,
1. Dip grape leaves in large pot of
boiling water 2 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
2. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat.
Add onion, and sauté 7 to 10 minutes, or until
beginning to brown. Add rice and 21/2 cups water,
and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to
medium-low, and cook 30 to 40 minutes, or until
liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, and stir in
tomato juice, pistachios, parsley, mint, raisins,
and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, if
desired. (Mixture will be very wet.)
3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush 2-qt. baking dish
with olive oil. Pat grape leaves dry. Line bottom
and sides of baking dish with grape leaves, allowing
leaves to hang over sides. Spread half of rice
mixture over grape leaves. Top rice with more grape
leaves, then top with remaining rice mixture. Cover
casserole with remaining grape leaves, and seal by
folding over grape leaves around edges. Brush top
with olive oil. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until
grape leaves on top darken and casserole looks firm
4. Dip knife in cold water. Cut straight down
with tip of knife to make 8 servings, then remove
servings with spatula. Garnish with lemon slices,
and drizzle with pomegranate molasses (if using).
