The dolma is a traditional stuffed dish from the Balkans, but it can also be found in the Middle East and Central Asia.
It’s usually made of cabbage leaves or vine leaves and the stuffing is usually made of a mixture of ground meat, rice, and some veggies such as tomatoes, onions, or peppers.
Make sure to use a big red cabbage, so you can choose the best leaves for your cabbage rolls – choose the big ones, of course, so you’ll have enough space to “play” with!
If your leaves are too big, you can cut them into a square shape, which will make the process of rolling them much easier.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to remove the core of the cabbage for easier rolling. This is one of my best tips for rolling dolmas!
For serving, I like to keep things simple and traditional, so I choose to serve these with some hot polenta on the side and some vegan sour cream.
