 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   16       oz           Brine-packed grape leaves
    1 1/4   c            White rice, shortgrain
    3 1/2   c            Vegetable broth
    1       ea           Onion, finely chopped
      1/2   c            Olive oil
    1       ea           Garlic clove, minced
    2       tb           Dill, minced
      1/2   c            Parsley, minced
      1/2   c            Lemon juice
                         Salt & pepper
 
   Unfold grape leaves & rinse with cold water.  Remove &
   discard small stem from each leaf.  Pat dry & set
   aside. Bring rice & broth to a boil.  Reduce heat to
   low, cover & simmer until the rice is tender, about 25
   minutes.  Let cool to room temperature.
   Saute onions in 3 tb olive oil until translucent,
   about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Stir in
   garlic, dill, parsley & half the lemon juice, remove
   from heat. Add onion mixture to rice.  Season & mix
   well.  Preheat oven to 350F. On a flat surface, place
   one leaf smooth side down with stem towards you. With
   wet hands, roll one ts rice mixture in the palm of
   your hand into a cylinder shape.  Place filling at
   stem end of the leaf & begin rolling the leaf, folding
   both sides.  Continue rolling to enclose the filling &
   make a tight bundle. Place filled leaf in a 9 X 13
   baking dish.  Repeat with remaining grape leaves &
   rice mixture. Drizzle with remaining oil & juice.
   Cover with foil & bake until tender, about 30 minutes.
   Remove from oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes &
   refrigerate.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
