    1. 1
      Put the onions in a bowl with water and let them stand for 10 minutes. Wash them well and drain.
    2. 2
      Wash and drain the rice.
    3. 3
      Add in a bowl the rice, onions, the herbs, the seasonings and 1 tablespoon olive oil.
    4. 4
      Rinse the leaves under running water and blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Place 1 leave on a counter, shiny side down and add 1 teaspoon of the rice filling. Roll but let it loose a lot, because the rice will expand. Continue with all the other leaves.
    6. 6
      Place the dolmathes in a saucepan and add 2 cups of warm water. Add a pinch of salt, and the olive oil. Let it boil and reduce the heat to low. After 10 minutes add 1/2 cup of water and the lemon juice. Simmer for 30 minutes more.
    7. 7
      Serve cold as an appetizer or as a full vegan dinner with a salad.
    8. 8
      Nice served with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top.

      Yum! Very different to the way my mother makes them but still very yummy. They take a little time to make but the effort is worth it at the end. My mother also places a plate on top of the Dolmas while it's cooking not to allow the rice too expand to much. Thank you Katia

      I made this recipe for PAC Spring 2008. I had only had dolmathes with a meat and rice filling before this. I made a Greek meal for friends who are vegetarians and I wanted them to be able to enjoy all the dishes, so I decided to make this version. The recipe is so flavourful that I did not even miss the meat. Thank you Katia for posting this delicious recipe!
