These tempeh rainbow veggie wraps are just as delicious, and just as healthy as they are beautiful! They are fun for the whole family to make and will delight your tastebuds with flavors of sesame, ginger, and lime. Because these wraps are naturally gluten free and vegan, they are a great option to serve for any dietary preferences! They can be enjoyed as an appetizer or even shine as the main course.
What do I need to make these wraps?
These wraps start out with a large collard leaf for the base! If you aren’t a fan of collard, this recipe is sure to turn you into one. If you can’t find collard leaves, you can also use rice paper wraps for an equally delicious result!
- Collard Leaves – Look for large collard leaves that are bigger than yo’ face. Try to find leaves that are 8-10″ long with few tears/holes/blemishes.
- Red Cabbage
- Red Pepper
- Noodles – You can use rice noodles, vermicelli noodles, heart of palm noodles, or shirataki noodles
What type of sauce goes well with these Rainbow Veggie Wraps?
These wraps would go well with a variety of sauces, including sweet chili sauce, peanut sauce, soy sauce, or sriracha, but my favorite way to enjoy them is with this delicious Sesame Miso Ginger Sauce. To make the sauce, you will need just a few simple ingredients:
- Tahini – make sure to select a variety of tahini that is runny and not too bitter. I tend to find the roasted varieties of tahini are sweeter and more mild than the raw varieties.
- Maple Syrup
- Rice Vinegar
- Miso Paste
- Lime Juice
- Soy Sauce or Tamari
- Chili Garlic Sauce
- Sesame Seeds

- Cut broad stems off base of the collard leaves. Bring a large shallow pot of water to a boil. Submerge each leaf into the boiling water for 10-15 seconds until they turn a vibrant shade of green and then use tongs to transfer immediately to an ice bath. Set aside to dry.
- Lay one leaf at a time on a clean, dry surface with spine parallel to you. Layer the toppings in the middle in the order listed. Fold in the sides and roll tightly away from you keeping the seam side down. Repeat. Slice in half with a sharp knife if desired.
- Make the dipping sauce by adding all ingredients except the sesame seeds to a high speed blender and blending until smooth and creamy. Stir in the sesame seeds and season to taste.
