These wraps were so tasty I nearly ate them before I could take the picture!  With the kale and collard leaves, these little guys are also a double whammy for your greens quota. They are filling and delicious, and easily packed side by side for sharing with pals or taking as a super healthy meal on-the-fly.

You will need:
A bunch of whole collard green leaves, the bigger the better!
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tamari
1 small organic avocado, ripe
1 small clove of garlic, minced
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
cook 1 cup of brown shortgrain rice
3 green onions, chopped
3 big kale leaves, sliced thin
1/2 tomato
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
Combine all the sauce ingredients together and mash well with a fork (it looks like pond sludge, but trust me).  Add the green onions and kale to the hot cooked rice, and cover, steaming for a few minutes. When the kale is bright green, add the tomatoes, pumpkin seeds and sauce, and mix well.  The mixture should form a paste-like texture. Add another small dose of tamari if it seems more moisture is needed.
Scoop about 1/3 cup of filling onto the middle of flat, dry collard leaves, and add some sprouts.  Tuck the bottom in and fold the sides to make a nice tight little bundle of yumminess!

Puttering through the kitchen looking for something to make for lunch so I don’t have to venture out on this dreary Vancouver afternoon…

Decided to cook some long grain brown rice.  Have some left over veggies and a can of artichokes to  throw on top.  Need a sauce….

This is what I came up with and it is SO GOOD!

1/2 cup cashews

1/4 cup olive oil

3/4 cup water

4 cloves garlic

1 cup or more of fresh spinach

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (raw un-sulphered)

1 teaspoon raw vegan parm (found at karmavore, nutritional yeast would sub fine though)

Lots of cracked pepper

Generous pinch of sea salt

Blend until nice and creamy. Simple, delicious and raw!  I’m drizzling it on top of brown rice, canned artichokes, yellow pepper, cucumber and more chopped spinach. Sprinkle with sesame seeds for little extra Vitamin B1 or Thiamine, natural mood booster. Enjoy!
