Beet Leaf Holubtsi:
2 cups of water
1 cup of rice (Minute Rice)
1 tsp of salt
1 small onion (chopped)
1/2 cup of butter
2-3 tsps of dill
fresh young beet leaves
Dill sauce:
1 cup of cream
1/2 tsp of dill
1 tbsp of onion
1/2 tsp of sugar
1-2 tsps of flour

For the sauce simmer the 1 tbsp of onion, cream, dill, sugar and flour in a saucepan for 10 minutes, set aside.

In a small sauce bring water and salt to a boil, add rice cover and remove from heat. Fry the onion in the butter until the onions are transparent, add the dill and add this mixture to the rice. Add a few dashes off pepper and mix well. Set aside. Wash the beet leaves and wilt them in a low oven for a few minutes. Place a tablespoon of rice on the beet leaf, fold sides over filling and roll up. Place in layers in a buttered casserole. Pour the dill sauce over the Holubtsi and cover and bake at 300*F for 1/2-3/4 of an hour.
