• 2 packages vegan pesto sauce mix
  • 1 red peppers (or more)
  • 5 cloves garlic ( or more)
  • 6 tablespoon olive oil (or other cooking oil)
  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • grape leaves (a lot!)


Cook the brown rice according to package directions. While that is cooking chop the red pepper into small pieces and mince the garlic. When the rice is about ten or fifteen minutes from being done, heat the oil and saute the peppers and garlic in it. Add the pesto sauce packages shortly after the peppers and garlic. Let that cook for five minutes or so, then add it to the brown rice and roll the mixture up into the grape leaves.
