Yaprak (Slavic: japrak; from Turkish: yaprak, "leaf" [1]) is a generic name for meals made of grape (especially Sultana grape) leaves (a kind of kale), stuffed with meat (pork or lamb) and rice, or more rarely rice only. Meals are called as Yaprak Sarma or Yaprak Dolma. In Balkans brocole leaves are sometimes used instead of grape leaves.

It is mostly popular in Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Palestine but also known in the Balkans, especially in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where it may be served with mashed potatoes and yogurt.
