On this episode of The Cooking Show, Farideh is in her home kitchen making Iranian grape leaves stuffed with a savory beef & rice filling. She makes the filling by first cooking aromatics like scallions, garlic, and onions, before adding ground beef, split green peas, basmati rice, and spices like saffron and cinnamon. Once the filling is ready, Farideh rolls it all up into grape leaves, and steams them with a lemon juice mixture, resulting in a vibrant, addictive handheld snack.
