Serves or Makes: 30


  • 1 cup short grain rice, soaked and drained
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 1 small white onion, sliced `
  • 1/ 3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Tuttorosso Tomato Puree
  • 1/ 2 cup Tuttorosso Tomato Sauce
  • 1/ 2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/ 2 cup dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons seven spice powder
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/ 2 16-ounce jar grape leaves, in brine
  • 1/ 2 lemon, sliced `

For the Cooking Broth:


  • Step 1

    Soak rice in water for 15 minutes and drain well.

  • Step 2

    In a large skillet on medium heat add 1/3 cup olive oil. Add in the chopped onion and saute until translucent. Season with salt, pepper, and seven-spice powder. Combine well and add in Tuttorosso Tomato Puree and Tuttorosso Tomato Sauce. Cook for 5 minutes before turning off the heat.

  • Step 3

    Add drained rice, chopped parsley, and dill and mix thoroughly. Set aside in a bowl to cool.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, make cooking broth by heating vegetable broth in a pot over medium heat. Add Tuttorosso Tomato Puree and olive oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes until well combined and turn off the heat to let cool.

  • Step 5

    Place your small onion at the base of a medium-sized pot where you will be placing your grape leaves in to cook.

  • Step 6

    Prep grape leaves by separating each leaf and cutting off any excess stems.

  • Step 7

    To begin filling, place one grape leaf smooth side down on a clean cutting board.

  • Step 8

    Scoop one teaspoon of the cooled rice mixture in the center of the grape leaf.

  • Step 9

    Fold sides over mixture and tuck, as you would with a spring roll until all filling is wrapped nicely. Arrange in a pot with sliced onion in a row formation.

  • Step 10

    Repeat until you run out of filling (this recipe makes about 30 stuffed grape leaves).

  • Step 11

    Once your pot is filled with wrapped grape leaves, pour cooking broth over until it reaches the last row. Top with sliced lemons.

  • Step 12

    Cover pot with aluminum foil and cover with lid.

  • Step 13

    Cook on high heat for 10 minutes until liquid starts to boil and lower heat to low. Let cook for 40 minutes before serving.
