It started the spring, and with it the first leaves of Swiss chard in the garden. This means that the spring season of Swiss chard rolls begins. I love Swiss chard rolls in any form. These rolls with sour cream are real refreshment. Prepare this easy meal, nutritionally rich and well-balanced, rich in vegetables with rice and meat will be a meal to be quickly found on the table.

  • 4 tablespoons of rice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley leaf
  • 700 ml of water

For easier folding briefly soak washed Swiss chard leaves into boiling water, and immediately put in a bowl with cold water, drain it and leave on a cotton cloth to dry. Wash the rice and then cook in 250 milliliters of salt water. For easier filling of Swiss chard leaves, vegetables are chopped in a food processor. In the hot oil cook finely chopped onion, add the minced meat then carrot, spice , nd cook for about 10 minutes. Then add the chopped tomatoes, garlic, and parsley, cook for a few minutes, remove from heat and add the previously cooked rice. Expand blanched Swiss chard leaf and in the middle put the filling of meat and rice. Carefully roll up and place in a pot. Previously at the bottom of the pot, arrange a couple of leaves of Swiss chard so the rolls would not burn out. Over sorted rolls pour water, put ½ tablespoons of butter, spice and put on a low flame to cook for about 30-40 minutes. When finished pour in a plate and serve with sour cream.
