Simple vegan collard wraps with sriracha hummus and Thai peanut inspired dipping sauce. Collard wraps are easy to customize; change up the fillings, use your favorite sauce, and make them your own!
Wash the collard greens. Cut off the thick stem pieces protruding past the leaves. Use a paring knife or vegetable peeler to shave down the thicker part of the stem near the base of the leaf. This will make the collard wraps much easier to roll up.
If you prefer your collard leaves lightly cooked (see notes in my post), bring a pot of water to a boil. Dip each collard leaf into the water for 15 to 30 seconds according to your preference, and then remove and pat dry.
Stir together the hummus, chopped scallions, and sriracha. Add more sriracha to taste if desired.
One by one, fill the collard wraps. Take a collard leaf and spread about 2 tablespoons of the hummus mixture onto it. Add small handfuls of shredded carrot, cucumber sticks, and shredded cabbage. Then roll the up the collard wrap like a burrito, tightly rolling it and tucking in the sides while you do so. If needed, you can stick a toothpick through it to keep it rolled up. I find that on a good day, I can simply place them seam side down and they'll stay nicely rolled.
Repeat until collard leaves are used up. When ready to eat, use a sharp knife to slice each roll in half. Serve cold, with peanut sauce or other dipping sauce of choice.
GROCERY/MARKET SHOPPING: Look for collard leaves with uniform shape and few or no holes.
OIL-FREE / SOY-FREE / NO ADDED SUGAR: Choose a peanut sauce or other dipping sauce recipe that is free from these items, or eat without dipping sauce.
NUTRITION: Nutrition facts exclude dipping sauce.
VARIATIONS: Not a fan of hummus or want to use a higher-protein option? Extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed, and (optionally) cooked is a great substitute.
Bean sprouts or pea shoots are another excellent addition, as are roasted red peppers (from the jar, for a shortcut) and tropical fresh fruit like mango or pineapple for a bit of sweetness. Mix and match seasonal vegetables like kohlrabi as well.
