The hardest part of this recipe is separating the grape leaves. This is a super easy version and very tasty. I rinsed and then blanched my grape leaves for about one min. before draining and plunging into cold water. The leaves were very easy to fill and roll. I like the broiling method. It worked very well. Thank you. Made for ZWT9 for Soup-A-Stars
This time of year, I can get beautiful fresh grape leaves at the farmer's market which I just blanch and use, as I did for this recipe. Very easy to make, and lovely spritzed with the fresh lemon. Definitely a meze I'll make again.
This is a delicious appetizer and very forgiving of errors (DH rolled all the leaves and cheese and then we saw the mint and olive oil were supposed to go on the inside---oops! So we put it on the outside of the leaves and it was still great). We made 10 leaves for a 10 oz log of goat cheese. Everyone enjoyed it and I will make this again (correctly, I hope). Made for ZWT9
I adjusted some and really enjoyed the goat cheese, nice and creamy! Made for Looney Spoon Phoodies for ZWT#6.
These were really good. I have never had grape leaves before so this was a real adventure for me. I used ones out of a jar and soaked them for a little bit before drying and using them. The goat cheese in these was a great smooth cheesy contrast to the grape leaves. Thanks IngridH for a new yummy taste. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.
