Wrap Recipes: Collard Wraps with Turmeric Spread

Lunch can often be a challenge. So many times, I find myself lost in a project, only to realize that lunch time has passed and I am starving. At that point, I need something quick and healthy to throw together. That is when raw food can really shine. Grab a couple of collard leaves, chop up some veggies and make a quick sauce and you have a delicious collard green wrap that can be prepared in minutes. This one is a great addition to your wrap recipes collection.



This recipe features a wonderful coconut, lime, turmeric sauce that is the perfect compliment for the cucumbers and peppers. A little carrot thrown in for good measure gives it a little more flavor and crunch. Turmeric is a very healthy spice. It is often called a super food because of all of it’s healthy benefits.

    I just made the turmeric sauce and it is absolutely delicious! I cannot believe how good it is. I can’t wait to make the wraps tomorrow. Hopefully, I won’t eat all of the sauce before then!

    Hi Susan can I substitute ordinary coconut in this recipe as it is difficult to get young Thai coconuts where I live?

    Thank you for the recipe. The sauce was very nice. Since collards are a bit rough, I used Swiss chard leaves and stuffed with Jerusalem artichokes, tomatoes, zucchini, asparagus, celery and avocado. Really tasty.

    I’m new to raw fooding it, this was my first real attempt at a raw meal. I’m no stranger to eating whole foods and have been a vegetarian for almost 19 years. They were very good; but I think the collard greens were a little tough on my digestion. LOL This was also my first time using a young thai coconut; it was exciting to crack into and use the juice and the flesh. Thank you for the recipe!
