Collard Green Wraps
20 mins (prep 20)
11 ingredients
3-5 servings
I don't remember where I found this recipe. I wanted to have something in the line of raw, so when I found this I knew it would be worth trying. I let the nuts soak for about 3 or 4 hours, then discarded the soak water.. When the almonds are nice and plump that's when they are ready to use. I also added a clove of garlic and a shallot to this, plus some mixed herbs, cumin and dried cilantro. I like my wraps spicy. I didn't have any green onion which are recommended to tie the wraps, nor did I have any tomato, so I shredded a couple of carrots and cut up part of a sweet bell pepper in strips. I put in two strips per wrap. I also blanched my collard green leaves in hot water for about a minute, just until they were soft enough to fold. After removing the leaves from the water, use a parring knife and remove the stem and the tough rib. Pat the leaves dry on both sides, then fill them. I served this with a lovely Tahini Sauce which I found on Zaar. It is Tahini Sauce. I garnished the wraps with some freshly snipped garlic chives from my garden. I didn't include the 3 hour soak time for the nuts and sunflower seeds in the prep. time.
