DETOX RAINBOW ROLL UPS

This is not that kind of rainbow roll-up, though. This is a rainbow roll-up that can earn the word DETOX in front of it, thanks to yummy and nutritional powerhouse foods like: carrots. chickpeas. curry. red cabbage. peanuts. dark leafy greens.

Rainbow Roll-Ups:

  • carrots, cut into matchsticks

  • cucumbers, cut into matchsticks

  • red cabbage

  • curry hummus

  • cooked rice or quinoa (optional)

  • peanuts and cilantro

  • collard greens (leaf)

Peanut Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (tamari or coconut aminos if gluten free)

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 clove garlic

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prep: Trim the stem/spine of the collard leaf – don’t cut it completely off, but just cut it down so that it’s nice and thin and pliable.

  2. Roll: Arrange your fillings on the collard leaf. Fold the ends in and roll from front to back, trying to keep everything in there nice and tight. Watch video for a visual example.

  3. Peanut Sauce: Run all the ingredients through a blender or food processor. Voila!

Notes:

  • You can steam the collard leaves if you want to make them more pliable. I also found that just running the leaf under hot water or placing hot rice on it was enough to soften it just a little bit.

  • These aren’t the greatest for making ahead, since the hummus can get a little watery once it sits with the veggies. I recommend prepping everything and then keeping it in the fridge and rolling a fresh one each morning or just before you eat it. They will hold together nicely with toothpicks!
