Goat Stuffed Grape Leaves in a Red Pepper Sauce with Greek yogurt..

Even if you live in a place in canada that you can’t grow grapes themselves, unless you are really far north, you can most likely grow grape leaves, these are lovely in a number of dishes but I tend to stick to the main one of using them as a wrap, I find unlike a cabbage roll where the cabbage is itself part of the flavour of the dish, when it comes to grape leaves the middle and the sauce is the main flavour with just a hint of the grape leaf..

Add in the fact that I am working on removing wheat from my plate at this time and that means no bread, no wraps, no dough of any kind and suddenly being able to use my grape leaves as a wrapping becomes even more useful then normal!

Just to add to the wonderful news about grape leaves, they are only 3 calories each..

Goat Stuffed Grape Leaves in a Red Pepper Sauce with Greek yogurt..

1 pd of goat hamburger meat
1 med onion finely diced
1 clove garlic finely diced
1 can of sweet corn
Salt and Pepper to taste..

1 jar of sweet roast pepper sauce

40 to 50 fresh (or canned) grape leaves about the size of your hand..

A heaping tablespoon of extra thick greek yogurt, homemade or store got..

If you have fresh grapes, go pick ones just bigger then your hand, you want to still get the fresher lighter green leaves and you need to trim off the stem itself, wash and let them rest while you prepare the filling, cook your meat, onion and garlic together, then add your corn, saving your juice if you want.. turn off heat.. take one heaping tablespoon per leave, and place in middle, fold edges and roll and place in your shallow one row only baking pan, repeat till its full, I had a cup or so of the middle mix leftover, can be used as a excellent mix with eggs for a awesome breakfast omlet.

Then pour a 2 cup jar of sweet roasted red pepper sauce over them, I mixed in my corn juice to make it a touch less thick, this was my homemade version, perhaps a store got one for pasta would not require the thinning? Bake in a hot 375 oven for 20 or 25 min till the leaves are tender and it is smelling heavenly.. Serve 4 to 6 on each plate with a heaping spoon of yogurt

Leftovers can be reheated, and are just as good the next day! Enjoy..

    Oh wow, this sounds fantastic! Do the Greeks call these Dolmades (or something like that?)) And good for you on doing the wheat less thing!! (I must admit to still slipping a bit now and then): I know I can, I know I CAN, I KNOW I CAN!!
    AND I swear I didn’t see this posting until after I’d written the comment on your last blog post… Too funny!
    (Speaking of which: wow, you’re really in hyper-bunny mode aren’t you? ; )

    • I think that is what they are called, or something like that, but I don’t know if that is for a certain filling or if that is just with the grape leaves..I would love to get where Brenda is in regards to removing everything but I really want DH on board and so he has said yes to the different changes and feels they would be enough of a challange without me adding in more.. but I will see what I can do about making sure my lunch is paleo, even that would help alot..along with the other things I am doing..

      Yes, to the hyper-bunny mode, I am in.. get this done.. reward myself by checking email or writing on the blog.. then get this done etc etc..
