    Serves: 4 

    • 110g (4 oz) unsmoked bacon lardons
    • 1 head lettuce (e.g. cos or romaine)
    • 110g (4 oz) cooked rice, cooled
    • 1 carrot, grated
    • 1 slice brown bread, blitzed in a processor
    • 1 teaspoon honey

    1. In a frying pan over a medium heat, cook the bacon lardons until golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain.
    2. Cut out and remove the lettuce ribs and set aside. Mix all of the other ingredients together in a bowl.
    3. Lay the lettuce leaves out and spoon a little of the filling into each leaf then roll up; each one is a dolma. Pack tightly in a dish, probably ramekins would be good for a party, or secure with a cocktail stick. Chill in the fridge until time to serve.
