DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and destem the chard leaves; cut into roughly 5" pieces.
  • Mix veggie ground round, spices, and cheese.
  • Taste and adjust as you like.
  • Bear in mind the rice will soak up some flavour and the broth will add salt and acidity. When you are happy, stir in the raw rice.
  • Make little logs of filling on your chard leaves about 2" by 3/4".
  • Roll up like an egg roll (log goes diagonal, fold in 3 sides and roll).
  • Place seam side down in a large pot, pack in tightly. Make 2 layers if needed but you don't want them rattling around and unrolling.
  • Cover with broth (you may not need all the broth, you may need more), and lemon juice.
  • Cover and bring just to a boil.
  • Simmer gently for 20 to 30 minutes or until rice is cooked.
  • Remove dolmades from liquid and serve with tzatziki.
  • Serve broth on it's own or make into lemon drop soup if desired. Can also be used as the liquid for grains or frozen for future use.
