Raw Burrito, Lime Marinated Veggie Mix, Nutty Cheese* Spread and Fresh Avocado. Collard Green Wrapped

I’ve been on a Collard Green Wrap and Nut Mixture Kick Lately.  I usually go through a phase where I eat nonstop collard green wraps until I totally burn out.  I revisited them recently, and now I know why I get obsessed with them.  They’re so easy to make, they hold great for lunch, it’s ridiculous how healthy they are, and they’re a great excuse to get extra raw greens in.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Start by Combining all of your Peppers with your lime juice and mix well.  Let marinade while you prep the rest of your ingredients.
  2. In a blender/food processor, combine Nuts, a bit of Evoo, Mexican Spices and Nutritional Yeast to Taste.  Start with around 2 T of Nutritional Yeast and add more as desired.  Blend Well.  Add water as Needed to thin the mixture out.  Should be thick, like a paste.
  3. Prep your collard greens by washing them and trimming down the stems.  To do this take a knife and slowly cut down the rib, using a pairing style cut.   This will ensure the collard green will not break as you fold it up.  If you skip this step, it will break and cause holes!
  4. Start by spreading your nut mixture on the collard green, top with your marinated veggies and Slices of Fresh Avocado. Finish with a drizzle of hot sauce.  (Also add any other desired optional ingredients)
  5. Roll up, cut in half and serve!
