Prep time: 
30 minutes


Thanks to Antoinette, who is part of our amazing packing team, this receipe is a variation on stuffed vine leaves and is defintely one to try.


  • 1 onion
  • 100g mushrooms
  • 100g mince meat, optional
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spices
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 200g cooked rice
  • tomate paste
  • 1 bunch of chard leaves


  1. Soften the leaves in hot water before wrapping.
  2. Fry a mix of onions, mushrooms or mince meat, season with salt, pepper and any other spices you prefer
  3. Add some rice, mix until everything is coated. Add tomato paste and mix well.
  4. Take the soften chard leaves, and put a dollop of rice mixture in the center of each leaf. Wrap it tightly into a burrito/roll shape, being sure to tuck in the edges and form a tight bundle so the filling does not escape.
  5. Once all the leaves are filled, pack them into a pan with a lid. Squeeze them all in so you have one layer, cover them over with a large leaf and add water so they are just covered and simmer for around 15 mins until they are warm throughout
