Considered and Consumed: The Grapes Have Won

18 Jul

After all the careful consideration, everyone that was around while I was trying out my new recipes liked the grape leaf. Success!

While scrolling through the million and one recipes for greek and arab style grape leaves on the internet, I found a raw food site that suggested stuffing them with whatever you deem awesome and eating them straight of the vine.

BRILLIANT!

I tried about everything I could think of, but I really was hungry, so a pice of turkey was always in the center.

The young leaves are best for eating raw, and a bit of beet leaf and red onion made it complete in my book!

The absolute best filling was a recipe I found on National Public Radio:
One cucumber chopped fine
One onion ( I used red ) chopped very fine
One package of cream cheese
Mix it (don’t blend in a blender) and enjoy! (like on EVERTHING)
