Stuffed Grape Leaves with Quinoa and Mint

Grape leaves with Quinoa and Hummus cropServes 6-8
Free of: Gluten and all top allergens.


  • 1 jar of grape leaves (about 30 leaves), drained
  • 1 cup (250 mL) raw quinoa
  • 2 cups (475 mL) vegetable stock (look for allergen-free, GF brand)
  • 2 cups (475 mL) tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) red onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) currants
  • 1 small bunch  mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan, cook quinoa in vegetable stock. Use medium heat until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is cooked through.
  2. In a large bowl, add cooked quinoa and remaining ingredients (except grape leaves). Stir well, and taste test seasoning.
  3. Lay the grape leaves out on a flat surface. Place about 2 tbsp of filling onto the center of each leaf.
  4. Fold over one side lengthwise, then the other. Roll from the bottom to form a bundle. Each should resemble a short, fat cigar.
  5. Continue until all the filling is used up. (A great job for involving the kids!)
  6. Serve with our hummus and olives.
