I had a ball the other weekend, preparing (and eating) stuffed grape leaves. DH was returning from a business trip, and I wanted something that would constitute a full meal, but would also be easy to eat in installments since he never knows what time zone he's in when he gets home.
Having done a fair amount of Greek cooking, I had several different recipes to choose from for the filling, but as I looked around for some tips on the actual stuffing and cooking, I really liked the recipe that was on the About.com Greek Food site. So that's what I'm recommending. I substituted ground lamb for the beef, but use whichever you want. You can also easily make this into a vegetarian meal by subbing in tempeh or another grain for the meat.
Now I can't wait for our grape vines to start leafing!
