  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onions until tender. Stir in rice and brown slightly. Add 3 1/2 cups water, and half of the lemon juice. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in dill, parsley and pine nuts.
  3. Remove stems from grape leaves and place 1 tablespoon of rice mixture in the center. Fold in the sides and roll tightly. Place, folded side down, in a baking dish and cover with remaining olive oil, lemon juice and enough water to cover 1/2 of the dolmathas.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.

Following the recipe as-is would probably yield about 3 stars, it's not lemony enough. But I made the following additions and had rave reviews from my dinner guests: While rice was simmering, I...

The rice was bit mushy (next time I'll try the rice cooker and steam them as is recommended in other recipes). Also, you can use just a little bit of oil and this recipe will be fine. I added...

Fabulous recipe! I grew up eating Middle-Eastern food including stuffed grape leaves. I have been looking for an easy recipe to duplicate the grape leaves I grew up with (and now love -- at a st...

Very good. Used all ingredients excepts the pine nuts. My one year old (who loves vegetables) loved these. Although she couldn't chew the grape leaves very well, they served as an effective v...

These were good. I found myself adding extra lemon juice because they weren't tart enough for my taste. I didn't have pine nuts, so I left them out. Next time I will definitely add the pine n...

I make this recipe with several variations. Instead of grape leaves, I use cabbage leaves. (sweeter than grape leaves) I make meatballs (ground beef/onion/instant rice/parsley) and wrap them i...

SO DELICIOUS ,IF YOU WANNA TRY SOMETHING ZAZZY AND DIFFERENT I DO RECOMMEND THIS ONE.

I was leary of the combination of spices but as it was coming together, it smelled SO good. This is a great recipe and I had no problems with it. Yummy. Will definitely make again.

Not quite what I was hoping for. Followed the directions exactly and they seemed to come out a bit too oily for my taste. I'll keep looking!
