Raw Cereal and Collard Wraps with Coconut Tumeric Cilantro Sauce
I tried a new raw dehydrated cereal today that i'm totally impressed with!! I ate a few bites of it with my morning smoothie. It has a great texture compared to many "raw granolas and cereals" on the market. check it out. Living Intentions Hemp and Greens Superfood Cereal!! It's filled with awesome stuff: buckwheat sprouts, coconut, palm sugar, sunflower sprouts, banana, sesame seeds, hemp protein, spinach powder, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa leaf, dandelion leaf and more.. When i crave a bowl of cereal i will totally eat this with almond milk and a few slices of banana!!
Cereals always take me back to when i was a kid and lived on Lucky Charms!! i would eat all the marshmellows and leave the rest. Then drink up all the leftover sugar-filled 2% milk. Oh how times have changed!!!
Now to the wrap!!
I love my wraps!! I made these collards wraps with a delicious and nutritious Coconut Tumeric Garlic Sauce. This one i will definitely recreate often!!
1 cup coconut meat
1/3 cup coconut water
1 1/2 cloves garlic
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 tsp coconut nectar
1 tsp turmeric
1 cup cilantro
1 tsp sea salt
dash of cayenne
Blend all ingredients in Vitamix Blender.
5 collard leaves
1 bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
3 carrots, sliced into thing strips
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cucumber, no seeds, sliced into thin strips
1 cup arugula
1 cup pea greens
De-stem collard leaf and lay flat. In center of collard leaf place above ingredients and roll like a burrito. I like to use a spoon to place sauce on each bite. You can also place sauce inside wrap before rolling.
I ate three wraps for lunch today!! Delish!!
Get creative in the kitchen!!!
