It is time again to make a bit of nutritional cleaning with the arrival of spring.

Kale is one of the healthiest vegetables for a perfect support of the body’s detoxification system.

Let’s boost our metabolism, optimize digestion and eat to lose weight and get energy for summer.

  • 20 kale leaves (stems removed)
  • 20 cabbage leaves(stems removed)
  • 1 T. rice (rinsed)
  • 1 T. large grain bulgur (rinsed)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 300 gr. medium ground meat
  • 1 T. red pepper paste
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. pepper
  • In a pot put water, add a pinch of salt and sugar. Steam kale leaves in a covered pot with a steamer basket for 5- 10 minutes.

    Pull off large outer leaves and trim away thick, tough ribs.

    Chop onion fine. Mix with rice, bulgur and ground meat in a bowl. Add red pepper paste, salt and pepper.

    Drop a spoonful of the mixture in the center of each kale leaf and wrap around meat securely. Repeat the same for the cabbage leaves.

    Place stuffed kale and cabbage leaves in a pan. Put an aluminium plate upside down (or some other weight) directly on the dolmas, to prevent the leaves from unwrapping.

    Add 1/2 lemon juice and cook for 15 minutes with 1/2 cup water.

    Serve with Turkish yogurt.
