Swiss Chard Dolmas

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: The Color of Paradise
Cuisine: Middle Eastern

This tasty side dish is a variation on the classic dolmas, in that the herbed rice is wrapped in leaves of Swiss chard instead of traditional grape leaves. The chard holds up well throughout the blanching, wrapping and baking process. I filled my Swiss chard leaves with long grain rice seasoned with dill and red wine vinegar. Dill-licious!

A link to the Recipes and Photos will be posted at the end of the month, along with my 'Color of Paradise' film review.
