Grape Leaves & Yogurt Dipping Sauce

by Nicole on August 2, 2011

Morning! Happy Tuesday and August! I just originally wrote Monday, but it’s not Monday is it?

I found a new favorite thing called HBO Go….which means I’m sitting here catching up on about a hundred episodes of True Blood.  Love it.

So last week in my cabinet clean out mission, I made wheat berry veggie burgers that were awesome. I will be making wheat berries again soon (mostly to get rid of them…) and I plan to make grape leaves again also.

Grape leaves are super easy…the hardest part is probably finding yourself a grape vine. If ya want to come to my Aunt Millie’s house and pick some up with me, let me know! :)

Grape Leaves

Boil water in a pot. When water comes to a rolling boil add leaves, one at a time. Shut off flame and let leaves sit in water for 8 minutes. Remove from water and rinse off in cool water to stop cooking. Set out on paper towels to dry. Add filling and fold in opposite sides and roll.
I also made a yogurt dipping sauce to go with it. Why not right?

check out that yogurt sauce!

Yogurt Dipping Sauce
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 4-5 fresh basil leaves1 garlic clove, minced
Combine in a bowl and mix well.
At the very least, give the yogurt sauce a try, you will love it!
If you want to see some pictures from Pure Bliss’s latest event, check it out here. They’ll be up soon.
I’m off to sit here and watch True Blood, eat, run and then meet a client later on!

*Sorry about the lack of spacing on here…for some reason my blog isn’t cooperating today!

Your grape leaves look delicious! I tried to make them once using the jarred leaves and failed miserably. I’m going to try your recipe :)

I like the sound of your yogurt dipping sauce. Going to give it a try, for sure! Thanks for sharing!

It was a long weekend here so today feels like a Monday for me too!

I would love to get my hands on some grape leaves. Funnily enough they’re hard to come by in Ireland :)

Wow, real grape leaves?!
I’ve seen canned versions before – what did you fill them with?

Whoa! I’ve never heard of eating grape leaves. That’s probably an embarrassment to my husband’s Italian family (shh! don’t tell them). Anyway, looks intriguing for sure!
