Russian Stuffed peppers. Low fat dolma
The more traditional Russian version of sarma is actually “Golubtsy” (stuffed leaves of large white cabbage).
But stuffed sweet peppers (as well as large tomatoes) are now also used, sometimes mixed with stuffed cabbage leaves in one dish.
Please Note: The cooked dish needs to sit tightly covered with the lid on, for several hours. (not noted in prep. time)
