WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  • Collard Leaves: Use collard green leaves to create a sushi-like wrap for the vegetables.
  • Carrots: Add color and crunch by including carrots.
  • Celery: I love celery in the rainbow wraps for more textural variation.
  • Cabbage: Purple cabbage adds beautiful color, but use what you have.
  • Sweet Peppers: I prefer the taste of sweet peppers, but bell peppers are a great alternative.
  • Sunflower Sauce: My recipe for sunflower sauce is a combination of natural sunflower butter, Tamari, chili oil, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, ginger paste, garlic, brown monk fruit, and water to achieve the right consistency.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do you keep the rainbow wraps together?

Tightly wrap the vegetables in large collard green leaves; this seems to do the trick! In my experience, collard greens are strong enough to keep the wraps together. If you’re concerned about them coming apart, add a thin layer of hummus before including the vegetables to maintain the structure.

Can I make the rainbow wraps ahead of time?

If you’re meal-prepping or planning a big get-together, make the wraps up to two days in advance and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.
