Vegan Collard Green Burritos
- 2 cups Raw Walnut Taco "Meat" *
- 3/4 cup Mexican Cheese Spread * (or something similar store-bought)
- 4 large collard greens* (as big and fresh as possible)
- 1 cup alfalfa, broccoli, or radish sprouts
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 1/2 small ripe avocado
- 1/2 cup pickled red onion (or thinly sliced radish)
- 1/2 cup Red Salsa (or store-bought)
- Prepare vegan taco meat and cheese spread if you haven't already. For the cheese spread, we used the recipe for the spread and added a little hot water to thin. Be careful not to get the cheese too thin or it will make for extra-messy burritos.
- Place washed collard green leaves on a cutting board and cut off the large stems at the base. Then use a knife to thinly shave along the remaining stem at the base of the collard green to thin until pliable (this helps ease the rolling process).
- Place a collard green leaf on a cutting board and top with 1/2 cup raw taco meat, 1/4 cup sprouts, 1/4 cup cilantro, a couple slices of avocado, pickled onion (or radish), and a few spoonfuls Mexican Cheese Spread and Red Salsa (see photo).
- Roll one end of collard leaf over the fillings lengthwise. Then fold the ends in, roll again, and place wrap seam-side down on a serving plate. Repeat previous step with the remaining collard leaves and fillings.
- Best when fresh. Leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator up to 2 days.
*If you can't access collard greens, you could also make raw tacos with butter or romaine lettuce (like these Rainbow "Raw-maine" Taco Boats).
*To keep the recipe raw, in the Vegan Mexican Cheese sub the chipotle pepper in adobo for 1 habanero pepper (or omit for less spice).
*Prep time includes making the Raw Taco Meat and Mexican Cheese Spread.
