Rice and Vegetable Stuffed Vine Leaves

For this, you need to prepare a filling mixture and then make the vine leaf rolls. Let’s keep this one vegetarian, although various types of meat can be included into the mix. Use mainly onion and spring onion, together with rice. Flavor with dill, parsley, garlic, and lemon. Best served with Greek yogurt.
