When I visited Turkey, the guide told us that much of the food associated with the western Mediterranean and parts of southern Europe originated in the royal kitchens of the Turkish sultans during the Ottoman Empire. For example, stuffed grape leaves became stuffed cabbage rolls - a known recipe adapted using local ingredients.
Those kåldolmar that CakePoet mentioned are cabbage rolls. The name is a give away that the recipe was an import. Kål is cabbage and dolmar is the Swedish plural of dolma, the name of the stuffed vine leaves. I often call them cabbage dolmas.

We do not take credit for everything, just the things other Swedes has done, it not our fault countries give people citizenship after they invented something useful.

By that logic. It's actually a loan word in Greek from the Turkish word.

And spaghetti is actually Chinese. Who cares as long as you enjoy eating it?
