How to Make Dolma (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Heat oil in a 4-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onions; cook, stirring, until soft, 3-5 minutes. Add rice, thyme, salt, and pepper; cook 2 minutes. Add 1 cup stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until rice is tender, 22-24 minutes. Stir in apricots, cilantro, parsley, nuts, mint, jelly, cayenne, lemon juice and zest, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat oven to 375°. Working with one leaf at a time, stuff the grape leaves. Place stuffed grape leaves seam side down in a single layer in an 8" x 8" baking dish. Add remaining stock and distribute lemon slices over grape leaves. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake until tender, about 1 hour. Let grape leaves cool before serving.
