Rainbow Vegetable Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Our rainbow vegetable rolls with peanut sauce are a perfect colorful midday snack, appetizer, or light lunch.

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: For textural variation, I love celery in our vegetable rolls.
  • Cabbage: I use purple cabbage for color, but use what you have.
  • Sweet Peppers: I prefer the sweetness of sweet peppers along with the other vegetables; bell peppers are a great alternative.
  • Peanut Sauce: My recipe for peanut sauce is a combination of natural peanut butter, soy sauce, chili oil, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, ginger paste, garlic, brown sugar, and water to thin it out and provide the right consistency.

HOW TO MAKE VEGETABLE ROLLS

Remove the collard green stems and cut the leaves in half. Then, bring water to a boil in a saute pan. Blanch the leaves for 20 seconds, and set them aside to dry.

Cut the cabbage, sweet peppers, carrots, and celery into matchsticks.

Now it’s time to assemble the roll-ups. Add a small portion of each vegetable to the collard green leaf.

Then, roll it into a cylinder-shape.

Cut off the end of the roll-up and set it aside.

Combine the ingredients for the peanut sauce in a small bowl and serve on a plate with the veggie rolls-ups.

How do you keep the vegetable rolls together?

I tightly wrap the vegetables in large collard green leaves, which seem to do the trick! In my experience, collard greens are strong enough to keep the vegetable rolls together. If you’re concerned about the wraps coming apart, you can add a thin layer of hummus before including the vegetables to maintain the structure.


Can I make the vegetable rolls ahead of time?

If you’re meal-prepping or planning a big get-together, you can easily make the roll-ups ahead of time and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.
