SW recipe: Stuffed vine leaves


175 g vine leaves in brine
100 g basmati rice
spring onions, finely sliced
plum tomatoes, finely chopped
garlic clove, peeled and crushed
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh mint
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tsp. toasted cumin seeds
ground cinnamon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
lemons, thinly sliced




Fill a large bowl with hot water and place the vine leaves in it for 30 minutes. Carefully remove and pat dry on kitchen paper.
Meanwhile in a separate bowl soak the rice in boiling water for five minutes. Drain well and return to the bowl with the spring onions, tomatoes, garlic, mint, parsley, cumin seeds and cinnamon. Season well.
Lay the vine leaves on a clean work surface and spoon a little of the filling into the centre of each one. Fold over the sides and then roll up to encase the filling, making a ‘sausage’ shape. (This should make about 20 parcels.)
Line the base of a large saucepan with the lemon slices and place the stuffed vine leaves snugly on top in a single layer. Cover with water and place an upturned plate directly on top of them. Cover the saucepan tightly and cook over a gentle heat for about an hour and a half, checking often that there is enough water to cover the stuffed vine leaf parcels, adding more hot water if necessary.
Leave the parcels to cool and then remove from the pan and chill until required.

Ultimate Slimming Tips!

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
