COLLARD GREEN & WALNUT “BURRITO”

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 0 min
Serves: 6 – 8
Prep notes: Pre-chopping all your veggies will make super lite work of all this. Or you can use a Vitamix blender to make it even easier.
Ingredients for Jicama Pico de gallo:
  • 3 large tri-color organic bell peppers
  • 1/2 a large organic purple onion
  • 1 small jicama
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 limes
  • 2 lemons
  • salt to taste
  • 1 bunch of collard greens (for later)
Directions:
  • Finely chop all veggies (minus the greens) and add into a large mixing bowl.
  • Squeeze the juice of both limes and lemons in the bowl. Add salt to taste and mix.

 

Ingredients for “Ground Beef” Walnut Meat:

  • 2 1/2 cups of organic walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons of organic ground Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of Tamari
  • 2 tablespoons of water
Directions:
  • Add walnuts to a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix or Nutribullet. Blend until slightly broken down. You want to avoid making a “nut-meal”. You are looking for a texture and consistency of ground beef or taco meat.
  • Add the nut-meat, spices and Tamari to mixing bowl. Mix until well incorporated.
  • To make the “Burrito”, rinse the collard leaves and lay them on a cutting board.
  • Trim the steams completely off to the base of the leaf so that you’re left with just the leaf.
  • Lay the dark side of the leaf down and the light side facing up.
  • Along the ridge of the steam that runs through the center of the leaf, add a couple of spoon fulls of Pico de gallo.
  • On the other side, a couple of spoon fulls of “meat”.
  • Wrap one side of the leaf over across the fillings and fold the ends of the leaf inward to make a “burrito”.
  • Press down to secure, cut in two. Eat and enjoy!!!

    WOW! I’m not that big a fan of collard greens, but this recipe changed my opinion! Talk about delicious — and filling! I had one half of the burrito and was totally satisfied!

    Thanks B!
