Final thoughts

This is a real simple recipe to create a nice and taste Aperitivo finger food. If you follow exactly this method you'll impress your sweetheart. I used all bio ingredients, avoid powders or industrial food. If you can't buy fresh products try to find the best you can in your neighbor. If you don't like cabbage try to use different kind of leafs. The original Tolma is an Armenian dish. Respect your food, ingredients and yourself. Eat less but better.
