This recipe uses two different leafy greens with two different methods of prep. The Lacinato Kale is massaged with lemon juice and spices to break it down, and the Collard Greens are given a quick blanch, both of which retain a high amount of the health-supportive nutrients in leafy greens. The quinoa adds an extra boost of superfood goodness and packs the wraps with complete proteins. —Andrew

  • 1 cup Walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Raisins or Golden Raisins
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander

In This Recipe
  1. Fill a small pot with 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the quinoa and turn down to a simmer. Cook quinoa for 15-20 minutes, until no water remains. Allow quinoa to cool.
  2. Toss the cooked quinoa together with all the other ingredients except for the collard greens and sprouts. Firmly massage the salad to mix the ingredients and break down the kale.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Submerge the collard leaves 3-4 at a time for 30-45 seconds to blanch them. Remove when they become bright green and begin to wilt, and place them in a strainer to drain.
  4. Lay the collard greens flat and fill them with the salad. Fold over the ends and roll the collards. Refrigerate to store.
