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 made this on the weekend it was delish… I used lettuce from my garden for the wrap instead.

    I’ve had zero luck with coconuts.. is there some kind of alternative, like raw shredded, dried, coconut I could use instead? Or perhaps an easy way to get the coconut meat?? Thanks for sharing the recipe and I can’t wait to try it!

    I love wraps and tacos like this to keep from getting bored with salads. Sometimes it’s all in the delivery, you know? That spread looks delicious, very different from anything I’ve tried.
