Recipe ~ Collard Leaves Make Great Wraps
Collard Wraps with Pecans and Avocado Recipe

I LOVE collard leaves
They are super nutrient dense and make great wraps
The possibilities are endless!


4 large collard leaves
1 red bell pepper
1 avocado
2-3 ounces alfalfa sprouts
½ lime
1 cup raw pecans
1 tablespoon tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
1 teaspoon cumin (or ½ teaspoon minced garlic and ½ teaspoon grated ginger)
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil


To prepare collard leaves wash leaves, cut off white stem at the bottom that has no leaves and place them in a bath of warm water with juice of half a lemon. Let soak for 10 minutes. Dry the leaves off with paper towels and using a knife thinly slice down the central root (to make it easier to bend the leaves for wrapping).

Slice avocado and pepper.

In a food processor combine pecans, tamari, cumin (or garlic ginger mix) and olive oil. Pulse until combined and mixture clumps together.

Place a collard leaf in front of you and layer nut mix, red pepper slices, avocado slices, a drizzle of lime juice and alfalfa sprouts. Fold over the top and bottom and then wrap up the sides. Slice in half and serve.
