Prepare the quinoa according to the instructions on the packet.
Finely chop the onion, garlic, tomato and parsley, and coarsely chop the raisins.
Put the olive oil in a hot frying pan and sweat the onion over a medium heat for 5 minutes.
Add the garlic, tomato and raisins and cook for another 5 minutes.
Season with the spices and remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the parsley.
Put 1–2 tablespoons filling on each vine leaf. Fold the short sides over the filling first, and then roll up the leaves tightly.
Brush the vine leaves with olive oil and cook over direct heat for 3–5 minutes each side. Serve with slices of lemon.
