    MapleLeafLili Hill's Note:

    Beet Leaves never tasted soooooo goooood! My mom used to fix this recipe often, with the abundance of beet leaves she had on hand when she operated a market garden in Alberta Beach, Alberta, Canada. I find myself searching market gardens for beet-leaves now that I've left home... And once you try this recipe, you'll keep looking for beet leaves again too!

      Glad I found this recipe again. Sometimes the wrapping gets hard to do, so I started making them the lazy way. Chopped the leaves into big pieces, steamed them for a few minutes, then added them to the rice mixture. I placed whole beet leaves in top of the rice, pour chicken stock (the powder mixed with water) over (not quite covering rice) and bake until absorbed. 350°. Then I pour whipping cream mixed with dill over and bake again until absorbed. Rich, elegant and truly sinful. Looks a bit like a risotto mixture.

      These were yummy. I harvested the beets minutes before filling the leaves. I didn't use all the rice. And the cream part wasn't enough to cover the rolls, after I pulled them out of the oven, I turned them over so the tops could get cream on them. Then I poured another half cup of cream over the rolls and waited for them to cool before serving. Next time we will omit the dill and add garlic and Parmesan cheese. Thank you, great use of beet greens.

      My Mother-in-Law used to make these and when she died I thought I would never have them again because I thought they would be too hard to make. What a shock when I stumbled across your recipe and gave it a go. They were so easy and taste so good.
