Fabulous recipe! I grew up eating Middle-Eastern food including stuffed grape leaves. I have been looking for an easy recipe to duplicate the grape leaves I grew up with (and now love -- at a steep price -- at places like Whole Foods). This was exactly what I was looking for. I love the use of dill instead of traditional mint (as in Lebanese recipes) and I added a little extra. The only problem I could see with the recipe is that there is no salt listed. That could be the problem the one reviewer had with it being bland. I added about 1 tablespoon of kosher salt to the rice while it boiled. I also added currants to the recipe instead of pine nuts (husband is allergic), though it would probably be even better with them, to duplicate the flavor of grape leaves I had at a Turkish restaurant a few months back. It turned out wonderfully. The little bit of oil on the grape leaves is what I would have added anyway as it is traditional to drizzle olive oil over the grape leaves and serve it with lemon wedges. It was a little labor intensive and I definitely need more practice at rolling the leaves, but it was worth the work. Thanks for the great recipe!

I was leary of the combination of spices but as it was coming together, it smelled SO good. This is a great recipe and I had no problems with it. Yummy. Will definitely make again.

Not quite what I was hoping for. Followed the directions exactly and they seemed to come out a bit too oily for my taste. I'll keep looking!

These were good. I found myself adding extra lemon juice because they weren't tart enough for my taste. I didn't have pine nuts, so I left them out. Next time I will definitely add the pine nuts, and some parmesan cheese.

Very good. Used all ingredients excepts the pine nuts. My one year old (who loves vegetables) loved these. Although she couldn't chew the grape leaves very well, they served as an effective vehicle for the yummy rice filling. Even better with veggie burger crumbled in rice mixture.
