Vegetable Collard Wraps with Peanut Sauce

Collard wraps are the new and improved version of lettuce wraps. They’re much better because they have more structure than lettuce, which makes them perfect for holding your veggies in nice and tight kinda like a burrito. Collards are a phenomenal source of vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, and folate. Think of these wraps as a nutrition powerhouse wrapped into beautiful green leaves.

The best part about these wraps is that you can really stuff them with your favorite foods. We used carrots, radishes, cabbage, and tofu but we encourage you to get creative! Use vegetables that are in season or that you have on hand. Make sure you balance out with a protein- we used tofu, but feel free to add hummus or any other pureed legume. Aside from adding a creamy finishing touch, the peanut sauce adds healthy fats and fiber to this already super nutritious wrap.

 Let’s get these babies started. For the peanut sauce all you need to do is blend all ingredients together. Easy enough! For the wraps, begin by heating the sesame seed oil in a pan and cook the tofu on each side for 1-2 minutes, or until golden. Next, steam the collard leaves for 30 seconds. Be careful not to oversteam, as you want the leaves pliable but firm. Remove immediately from the steamer, and place on a plate to allow to cool. Cut the tough stem ends off each leaf. Then, assemble each leaf by positioning the top of the leaf up, and the stem down. Center the rest of the ingredients for the wraps onto each leaf horizontally, and portion evenly so there’s enough for each leaf. Drizzle the peanut sauce onto the ingredients, and wrap from bottom to top, like you would for a burrito. Enjoy!
