DIRECTIONS

  • Gently saute spring onions in 1/4 cup olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Place in large bowl add remaining stuffing ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove leaves from cabbage carefully so as not to tear them. Parboil leaves in boiling water until limp enough to handle, cooking leaves in 2 to 3 batches. Drain in colander, rinse with cold water.
  • Cut out larger center rib of each leaf, any large leaves in half. Line base of a deep pan with the ribs and any leftover torn leaves.
  • Place a generous tablespoon of stuffing on base of each leaf, roll once and tuck in sides to contain filling. Roll to end of leaf. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Crush and mince garlic add salt, mint and lemon juice; mix with olive oil. Pack rolls flap side down in lined pan, sprinkling garlic-lemon mixture between layers of rolls. Invert a plate on top of rolls to keep them intact during cooking. Add enough cold water to just cover rolls, put lid on firmly.
  • Bring to boil, reduce to low and simmer 45 minutes. Remove from heat and leave aside 30 minutes. Serve lukewarm or cold.
