About this recipe: Less than 250 calories per person - use this on the 5:2 diet and my French neighbours love it. I serve this at lunchtime which in France is THE most important time of the day. This serves 4 people.

Carillion Bretagne, France

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

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  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.
