Kara’s Green Veggie Wraps

Kara came back from the SEC Tournament in March raving about this Raw Super Foods Bar she visited in New Orleans. After Heather and I visited their Facebook page we found a number of pictures of recipes we’d like to try. Of course, we didn’t know exactly what the recipes were so we looked at the pictures and tried to figure it out. Here is an example of me trying to figure it out… And might I say, I figured this out in a delish and healthy fashion.  

Kara’s Green Veggie Wraps

  • Collard green leaves, for the wrap
  • Cashew cheese  
  • Chopped red peppers
  • Chopped red onion
  • Tomato
  • Zucchini, grated
  • Carrot, grated
  • Avocado
  • Alfalfa sprouts

Cashew Sauce: 

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked a couple of hours)
  • 1/3 cup fresh almond milk
  • 2 tbls olive oil
  • 1.5 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard

This meal is a lot like a taco buffet, you can stuff your green wraps with as much or as little as you’d like. Using 1 of each of the above vegetables will yield enough for about 5 wraps. And I filled my wraps pretty well. The collard greens can be substituted with a leafy green or dinosaur kale (if you can find it). I used collard greens because they were big, thick, and very sturdy… and I couldn’t find dinosaur kale.

 Lay the collard greens out and spread the cashew cheese right down the middle. Then… top with desired vegetables and fold like a wrap.

 Yeah. That’s it.

 Oh… if you don’t want to make the cashew cheese, use hummus. It’s a perfect substitute.
