Jump to Recipe

This vibrant, colorful collard green wrap comes together in just 20 minutes and makes the perfect portable snack or meal. It’s great for making ahead for meal prep and keeps in the fridge for several days.

The star of the show is the tangy-creamy green curry tahini sauce made with our go-to Green Curry Paste. This wrap is what plant-based dreams are made of!

It’s no secret that around here we’re big fans of cuisines and flavors from around the world (including the Middle East, Germany, and Thailand). And this recipe draws inspiration from many of our favorites for the ultimate flavor explosion!

How to Make a Collard Green Wrap

We start with a fresh collard green leaf as the “wrap.” Collard greens work well for wraps because they are sturdy and large (the larger the leaves you can find, the better!). You can learn about the Mediterranean and African roots of these nutrient-rich greens here.

The slight bitterness of the greens pairs beautifully with our green curry tahini sauce. It’s sweet, punchy, and inspired by Thai and Middle Eastern flavors. Learn about the ingredients that inspired it here and here.

These wraps are then loaded with fresh veggies! Feel free to customize based on what you enjoy and have around. We went with carrots, red bell pepper, and cabbage for crunch and broccoli sprouts and beets for their liver-supporting properties.

Then we added avocado for healthy fats, sauerkraut* for its tanginess and gut-supportive probiotics, and hummus* for extra fiber and flavor!

*Note: You can learn about the origin of sauerkraut here and hummus here.

The result? These collard green wraps are:

Fresh
Crunchy
Vibrant
Customizable
Nourishing
Portable
& SO delicious!

They’re perfect for a cooling summertime meal or snack! And the components can be meal prepped ahead of time for super speedy weekday assembling. That’s our kind of meal!

Ingredients

WRAPS

  • 1largecollard green leaf
  • 2Tbsphummus
  • 1/4cupshredded beet
  • 1/4cupshredded carrot
  • 1/4cupthinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 3Tbspripe avocado
  • 1/4cupsprouts (any sprout // we prefer broccoli)
  • 1-2Tbspsauerkrautor kimchi (or sub thinly sliced cabbage or herb such as parsley or cilantro)

SAUCE

  • 3-4Tbspgreen curry paste (if using store-bought curry paste, start with less as it’s saltier and spicier than our DIY recipe)
  • 1Tbsptahini (or sub cashew butter)
  • 1Tbsplemon or lime juice
  • 1/2-1tspmaple syrup (if not vegan, raw honey is good too)

Instructions

  • Start by rinsing collard green, patting dry, and chopping off the bulky end of the stem (where the base of the leaves meet). Then use a sharp knife to carefully shave down the thickness of the remaining stem so it folds and wraps easily (see photo).
  • Prep all veggies by thinly slicing with a knife, mandolin, or food processor. Set aside.
  • Prepare your sauce by adding green curry paste, tahini, lemon or lime juice, and maple syrup to a small bowl and whisking to combine. Depending on the brand of your curry paste and tahini, you may need to add a little water to thin so it’s a dippable sauce. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more citrus for acidity, maple syrup for sweetness, or tahini for creaminess. Set aside for serving.
  • To assemble, add your hummus to bottom third of the collard green, then gradually build on top in layers, adding your shredded beet, carrot, bell pepper, avocado, sprouts, and sauerkraut (or kimchi or cabbage).
  • Next, press it all down so it’s in the bottom 1/3 of the collard green, fold the base over the ingredients, tuck in the sides to secure the fillings, and continue rolling away from you until the seams meet. Cut in half or eat whole. Repeat the process to make desired number of wraps. Enjoy immediately with green curry tahini sauce on the side for dipping / spooning on top.
  • Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. The sauce will keep when stored separately for up to 5 days. Not freezer friendly.

    These turned out really good! Even my vegan-reluctant husband commented that they were good. The sauce is key and adds that flavor that makes it taste like more than just a bunch of veggies. I enjoyed the unique green curry tahini combo, but think they would be just as good with whatever yummy sauce or dressing you have on hand. I’ll make this again.

    This recipe didn’t have the usual flavors that I go for but I had some of your amazing homemade hummus leftover from another recipe along with your gingery apple cabbage sauerkraut so I just had to try this! It was SO GOOD and SO FRESH! I made the green curry paste from scratch and that really amped up the freshness factor. Loved going to the store and leaving with all vegetables! A great lunchtime staple. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Slowly transitioning my family to plant-based and this was a flavorful and colorful recipe to make for them for a weekend lunch. We subbed tortillas for collards and it was filling enough for the veg-skeptics. Lots of fun flavors and textures!

    The green curry sauce makes the recipe. Great, fresh, yummy. Good way to finish up the green curry from the green curry veg recipe. Can’t wait to eat it tomorrow.

    This was delightful! However, it turns out I’m not a huge (raw) collard green fan, will likely use bib lettuce tomorrow. Despite that, I loved everything else. Used the fillings suggested. Made the curry sauce and I really like it a lot….cuz it doesn’t taste like curry 😊. I used a green bell pepper, one serrano and a poblano pepper, but kept the rest the same.
    Here’s to trying new things…..sauerkraut, raw collard greens and homemade curry dipping sauce!
    So excited to try more of your recipes,
    Cheers!

      We’re so glad you enjoyed the flavors in this one, Kelly! Bibb lettuce should work, though may be a little more messy. Is it possible you got an extra bitter batch of collards?

        It wasn’t really the flavor, it was a texture thing, it was just too “thick”. I feel it took away from the flavors of the filling.
        I figured the bib lettuce will be a bit messy, but I’ll just use less filling and make several wraps instead of just one big one. I’m ok with making a mess 😉

    ended up eating like five of these in one sitting because of how tasty they were! I had to use red curry paste for the dipping sauce because that was all my grocery store had but it was still delicious!

    Delicious! I loved the green curry spread. Next time I think I will fry some tofu to add more protein.

      Hi Zee, perhaps another sturdy leafy green (since it varies by region, we’re not sure what’s available to you) or chard?

    We are in prime veggie time due to fall harvest, so we are looking for ways to use all of our veg. This recipe is great since we have all of this handy! I was worried about the rolling aspect, but I appreciate the video… Thanks also for the links to traditional recipes. The family one was amazing! I will be making this this week.

    These look great! Never seen collard greens in stores where I live, any other green that would work to sub for it?

      Interesting! Collards should be pretty common- they’re great because they are sturdy and hold together well. But you could also use chard leaves- they will be more messy though!
