Recipe of the Week: Veggie Collard Wraps with Raw Tahini Sauce
Are you ever in the mood to just eat with your hands?! This recipe is perfect when you feel like devouring a wrap, burrito, or sandwich because it satisfies that hand to mouth food craving while being much more nutritious (and delish!) It’s grain free, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, soy free, and nut free! You could also make this raw by subbing the cooked quinoa for sprouted quinoa or using coarsely ground sunflower seeds. You can use any veggies you want (sprouts! tomato! zucchini! cucumber!) so there’s always an option depending on your mood.
- 2-3 Collard Leaves
- 1 Avocado
- 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked or sprouted
- Assorted veggies of your choice
