Ingredients

Collard Chicken Wraps

  • 15 large collard green leaves
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 cooked chicken breasts, chopped into strips
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 2-3 large diakon radishes
  • sunflower sprouts
  • pea shoots
  • fresh cilantro
  • fresh mint
  • whatever else your heart desires!

Peanut Dipping Sauce

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 lime, juiced approx 2 tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup cilantro

Instructions

  1. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Slice carrots, radishes into matchsticks. Whisk together lime juice and honey. Chop herbs and set everything aside.

  2. When water is boiling, hold collard by the stem and dip the leaf into water moving slightly for about 7 seconds or until the leaf starts to soften. It should look and feel silky when ready but not fall apart.

Lay the leaf dull side up and gently slice out the white stem then slice collard all the way through to the end. Gently pull both sides together, slightly overlapping the edges so it makes one leaf. Brush with lime juice mixture.

At the lower 1/3 of the leaf, place the filling, making sure to leave some of the leaf bare at the very bottom.

  1. Roll the leaf up over the contents and quickly fold in both sides, tucking in the filling. Pull tightly as you continue to roll up. Press the end of the collard into the wrap and firmly seal until the wrap closes and no loose ends are hanging out.
  2. Make peanut sauce and divide by 2 tbsp each into individual cups if using for lunches.

  3. Enjoy whole or cut in half before dipping into peanut sauce. So gooooood!! These store well for up to a week in an air tight container.
