Recipe for fasting sarmale in stevia leaves - ingredients and preparation


  • 4-5 bundles of stevia leaves (you have a few more leaves left, which you will put under the sarmale and above them)
  • A cup of rice
  • A carrot
  • 3 onions
  • 4-5 finely chopped mushrooms
  • 2-3 chopped prunes
  • 4-5 pieces chopped walnut kernels
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 300 milliliters of mashed tomatoes or broth
  • 500 milliliters of borscht with larch
  • A few sprigs of dill and parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation:

Peel and finely chop 2 onions. Heat the oil in a pan and pour the onion. Add a pinch of salt and let the onion harden for 1-2 minutes, over medium heat.

Meanwhile, peel the carrot and grate it, wash the rice and drain, chop the mushrooms, plums and walnut kernels. All this is put in the pan, over the hardened onion. Mix and quench everything with a cup of water.

Leave over medium heat until the rice is puffed, but not completely cooked. At the end, add the pepper and salt, add the chopped parsley and dill, mix and set the pan aside.

Meanwhile, put another pan on the fire in which you fry the third chopped onion. Pour the broth, stir and leave for another 2-3 minutes on the fire. This will be the sauce you will use between the layers of sarmale.

Wash the stevia leaves well, cut their stalks, then scald them for 30 seconds in hot water so that they roll easily. Take them out through a sieve to get rid of excess water.

Fill the stevia leaves with the mixture of rice, onion, carrot, mushroom, prunes, walnut kernels - one tablespoon of composition for each leaf.

Put a little oil in a Roman or yena bowl, high enough to fit all the sarmales. Form a "bed" of a few stevia leaves, then place a first neat layer of sarmale. Pour some of the broth and onion mixture over the first layer, then continue to build the "fort" of the stuffed cabbage. To each new layer, add a little of the tomato sauce with onions.

Place the remaining chopped stevia leaves, the rest of the broth and possibly a little dried thyme over the last layer of sarmale. In order to boil the sarmales, pour enough borscht over them to cover them a little, but not to puddle in it.

Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil and place in the preheated oven. Leave the sarmales in the oven for 60 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius. The stevia leaves boil much faster than the cabbage leaf. Good appetite!
