You are what you eat, and if you eat from Carla Oates’ new cookbook, you’ll be beautiful inside and out. Focusing on vegetarian and vegan cuisine and dedicating to improving overall gut health, this is one book for you. These lemon and herb quinoa dolmades are the stuffed grape leaves of your dreams. 

This take on traditional Greek parcels of goodness is delicious as it is, although the herby, lemony flavor of the vine leaves also works well with the addition of lamb mince, marinated peppers, zucchini (courgettes) or eggplants (aubergines). Vine leaves are a staple in a Mediterranean diet and are nutritive and anti-inflammatory.
