Thank you for the recipe! This is one of my favorite Middle Eastern dishes! My grandmother and aunts make this all the time. We serve it hot with cold yogurt on the side. I've seen different variations of this, including cold ones with only rice. In Armenian we call these sarma, and call stuffed peppers dolma =) I need to learn how to make this!
