Devon, England, UK

1 person made this


  • 2 cups of rice1
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 chopped onions
  • 200g vine leaves
  • 2/3 oil
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced
  • 2 tbsp dried mint
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar


  1. Put the rice in hot water for 30 minutes and then wash and drain. If you are using fresh leaves then put the leaves in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and remove the stems. If you are using preserved leaves then just remove the stems. You can put the stems at the bottom of the pan and this will prevent the bottom layer of stuffed leaves burning.
  2. Place oil in a pan and saute the onions. Add the rice and stir for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and the tomato puree. After 5 minutes add 1 cup of hot water and cook until the water evaporates. Add 1/2 cup of olive oil, dried mint, pepper, cinnamon, allspice, salt and sugar and mix.
  3. Place a leaf on the counter and put 1/2 tsp of filling on the larger end of the leaf. Fold the two sides in and then roll it up like a cigarette. Don't roll them too tightly though. Place them side by side each other in a saucepan. Put the lemon slices n the top and add 2 cups of warm water. Put a small plate on top of thevine leaves. Cover and cook on a low heat for 40 minutes, until the water has been absorbed.
  4. Serve with lemon slices and yogurt

7 Vegetarian Turkish Foods For Visiting Travelers Who Don’t Eat Meat

Turkey is often a country whose cuisine is associated with meaty kebab dishes, doner sandwiches, and lahmacun where essentially the food revolves around beef or lamb. Although finding Turkish foods with meat isn’t difficult, the vegetarian variety is also plentiful – even if you’re eating out often. An overwhelming majority of Turkish foods are vegetable-based and these are 7 staple dishes you can add to your animal-friendly diet when traveling in Turkey.

1. Cig Kofte (Raw Meatballs)

Probably the most deceptive vegetarian food name you’ll find, cig kofte was, until very recently, typically made with raw meat. Although meaty cig kofte is mostly banned and uncommon in Turkey, it’s spicy vegetarian variety (substituting bulgur wheat rice for meat) is found on many a street corner, particularly in the central and south-eastern regions.

2. Menemen (Turkish Omelet)

This typically spicy, runny egg dish with onions, tomatoes, and green peppers is commonly found at bus stations, diners, and the table of many Turkish homes. Menemen is a breakfast food that’s not an uncommon sight at dinners and is best eaten with plenty of bread to soak up the left over juices.

3. Borek Varieties

Often cut into small squares, this cooked pastry dish can be filled with cheese, spinach, or served plain in countless variations. Borek can also be filled with ground beef but most cafes and places offering it usually have at least one vegetarian version. The most common vegetarian Turkish borek recipe uses either spinach or feta cheese, but if you ever find the (newer) eggplant variety, I suggest you not miss it.

Visneli Zeytinyagli Yaprak Sarma – Stuffed Vine Leaves With Sour Cherries

This one’s absolutely my favorite! No need for an introduction paragraph, here it is, with all its glory, a unique Istanbul delicacy. Olive oil meets onion, rice, pine nuts, black currants, herbs and spices and the delicious sweet and sour filling is embraced by grape vine leaves and garnished with sour cherries. Divine! I’ve always wondered who came up with this idea first? To roll all that goodness into the leaves of some climbing plant. I wish I could thank him/her for making me fatter! Anyhoo… Making stuffed vine leaves in olive oil with sour cherries is not that hard, it is just time consuming and needs great attention to detail.
