Cabbage Leaves stuffed with Chicken Livers

Serves 4

Maybe it`s because I`m too impatient and a little cack-handed, but stuffing your own vine leaves seems to me yet another thing life`s too short for. Use the bigger leaves from a beautiful light green Savoy cabbage and it`s much less fiddly and time-consuming. They really are delicious teamed with the soft texture of chicken livers.

25g/1oz unsalted butter
225g chicken livers - frozen will do - trimmed of all membranes and cut into small cubes
400g/14oz cooked basmati rice - that`s 150g/5oz before cooking
8 large leaves taken off the outside of a Savoy cabbage
300ml/10fl oz vegetable stock, preferably home-made

Turn on oven at 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Heat the butter in a large frying pan. Add the chicken livers and cook, stirring, over a medium heat until just holding their shape - about 4 minutes. Mix thoroughly with the rice. Steam or gently simmer the cabbage leaves for 5 minutes, then lay them, one at a time, on a large board. Cut out only the very thick part of the central stem, still leaving the leaves intact. Place a heaped tablespoon of the rice and liver mixture in the middle of each leaf, roll into sausage shapes, secure with cocktail sticks and put into a shallow oven-proof dish. Pour over the stock, cover with aluminium foil and braise in the oven for 30 minutes.
