Stuffed Vine Leaves

We were looking for something reasonably lightweight, and it's been years since I tried vine leaves. Andy (my cousin) bought me an excellent Turkish cookbook for Xmas, and this recipe had had "the corner turned down" for a few months....

Luckily - living in North London - these ingrediants were not exactly difficult to find ! Note the cheap lamb burgers - which worked a treat for the lamb mince!

One of my favourite kitchen gadgets - a real Mexican lemon squeezer.



Shove in a bowl and mix



This one's for Andy. He knows why !



Not as easy as it looks



Before a 40 minute steam...



And after



Served with a wedge of lemon and some natural yoghurt. Really tasty - but would have been better as part of a larger meal - rather than just on their own.

Did you tie up the leaves or did they remain rolled?
