Jerusalem Style Dolma With Zesty Pine Nut Cheese and Sweet Pepper Sauce (raw, vegan)

Recipe by GreenChef Omid

This is a raw vegan version of the classic Middle Eastern recipe that has grape leaves stuffed with creamy pine nut cheese and a healthy salsa made of alfalfa sprouts, raisins and pine nuts and finished with sweet pepper sauce.

I learned a very similar recipe to this one when I was working in a Moshav in Israel for two months from a dear Palestinian friend when we were invited over for dinner one night after work. The beautiful part was that there were people from different religious background who shared long-lived cultures that are now suffering from past attachments. This is why I decided to call it Jerusalem Style Dolma, because I also share the same vision that we shared that night, the vision of freedom from ourselves.

Serves about 2 people

For the Dolma Leaves:

12 medium-sized brined grape leaves

Step 1 Rinse grape leaves and set them aside on a plate.

Instant Cashew Milk

cashewmilk2 Instant Cashew Milk

Cashew Milk (raw)

Quickly whip up some creamy sweet cashew milk. I prefer using the cashew butter method as it is so fast and I don’t need to soak cashews or strain anything. Although you can get it even smoother by straining it, if you want. Most recipes for nut milks use a little less nuts, although I like mine creamier and more like a whole milk then skim. If you prefer it lighter and lower fat, just reduce the cashews some.

Instant Cashew Milk:

2 1/2 Cups Pure Water

4 TB Cashew Butter

2 TB Agave Nectar

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

1/8 Tsp. Sea Salt
