These wraps are also amazing for meal prep and actually almost taste BETTER day two. The fresh veggies are incredibly nutrient rich, the tofu provides an abundance of plant protein, and the collard greens are an amazing low carb alternative to tortillas! If you’re trying to spice things up in the kitchen with fun plant based options – add this to your menu for an amazing meatless meal. 

What You Will Need to Make Rainbow Collard Wraps:

  • Fresh Collard Greens: Look for extremely large collard leaves (bigger than your head, for reference) that have few holes or tears
  • Lettuce: Romaine, iceberg, or butter lettuce will be perfect to add some extra crunch
  • Carrots
  • Bell Pepper: I like to use red, but any color will do
  • Red Cabbage
  • Cucumber
  • Vermicelli-Style Noodles: Rice noodles, shirataki noodles, or heart of palm noodles are great options
  • Peanut Butter or Powdered Peanut Butter: I usually use powdered because its a lower calorie, lower fat option and I can better control the saltiness and texture of the sauce
  • Limes
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Chili Garlic Sauce: Gochujang or Sriracha are both great
  • Maple Syrup: Option to substitute with any sweetener of your choice
  • Coconut Aminos: Option to substitute with soy sauce, tamari, or liquid aminos
  • Chopped Peanuts

Where You Can Find Collard Wraps:

Almost every grocery store will have this hearty green right in the produce section. I find it right next to the kale and mustard greens at the Whole Foods I go to.
