It goes without saying... these should be made with all organics, if possible.
12 grape leaves (fresh or in a jar. if jar is used, be sure to rinse the brine off the leaves)
In your bowl of rice, add some of the mandarin OJ. enough to make it moist, but not soaked. (save some of the juice for basting later) Mix the rice so that it is covered in juice. You don't want any extra juice in the bottom of the bowl. (that means you added too much juice)
rice, the bits of the shiny mandarin oranges mixed in with the
bright green onion tops and the crunchy pecan bits all rolled up
in a lucious dark green grape leaf.
cashew butter (made fresh or organic salt free in a jar)
mandarin orange juice or freshly squeezed from an orange
Mix the cashew butter & juice together to make a smooth semi-thick consistancy. Squeeze in some agave nectar and sprinkle on the cayenne pepper... all to your taste. mix together and drizzle on top of the dolmas or use as a dipping sauce.
Happy Humble Grazing......
