Ingredients
  • 8 large grape leaves
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon mixed herbs (thyme, basil, rosemary, and/or parsley)
  • 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Arugula, for a salad
  • 8 slices Greek loaf bread
  • Marinated olives, as an accompaniment
Directions
  • Mix the goat cheese, herbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

  • Spread out the grape leaves, in sets of 2 overlapping pairs. Scoop 2 ounces (ice cream scoop works best) of goat cheese mixture, and place in the middle of the pair of grape leaves. Starting with 1 end, fold each side until goat cheese is covered, making a rectangular packet. Repeat with remaining leaves. Place stuffed leaves in a container and cover with extra virgin olive oil.

  • Heat a grill.

  • Using tongs, place the packets onto the hot grill. When marked, turn over, and mark on the other side. Grill until cheese is soft. When soft, remove from grill.

  • Place on a bed of arugula, and tear open the grape leaf. Brush 8 pieces of bread with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grill both sides. Cut in half on a bias and serve with the goat cheese with the grilled bread and marinated olives.
