Summer is time for Delicious Collard Wraps


This is a healthy raw vegan way to eliminate the extra carbs found in flour tortillas and bread by using fresh large collard leaves for your veggie wrapper. This recipe is extremely easy to make and the crunch of the fresh vegetables and collard leaves will satisfy any appetite.  Most people think the only way you can eat collards is cooked to death with a lot of fat and salt, but they are delicious raw as a wrapper for vegetables and your favorite hummus or spread.


Ingredients

3-4 Collard Greens
1 small cauliflower head, raw or steamed
1 large avocado
3 limes, juice
2 large carrots, julienned
1 cup jicama, julienned
1 small zucchini, julienned
1 tsp. dried Italian herb mix (oregano, rosemary, thyme..)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 medium slice red onion

Directions

Place cilantro, cauliflower, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 tsp. dried herbs, juice from 1 lime and red onion in food processor until you have a creamy puree. Spread over collard greens and top with jicama, zucchini and carrot slices. Roll and close.

For the sauce, blend 1/2 avocado, 2 limes (juice), 1/2 tsp. dried herbs and more cilantro until creamy. You can more lime juice if necessary or a tiny bit of water.

Serve wraps with dipping sauce and bring anywhere you go. This will take around 20-30 min to prepare.

You can also add your favorite goat cheese, hummus, tahini, pesto, sundried tomato sauce...you get the idea.

Spring and Summer Market Season 2018

Many cities in the spring and summer are gearing up their weekly markets with a bounty of freshly harvested produce, Fresh eggs, baked goods, specialty products, prepared foods, soaps and cosmetics, pet snacks and much much more! 

We visited the Jasper Farmers Market in Jasper GA in Lee Newton  Park (Each Saturday Mornings usually starting at 7:00 and open until afternoon.)


We also visited the Woodstock Farmers Market in Woodstock GA (Each Saturday, May through October, held in Downtown on Market Street between Mill and Maple Streets adjacent to the Elm Street Arts Village event green from 8:30 am until Noon.)



Visiting these markets are so much fun and an opportunity to make friends with the local artisans that produce great food and hand crafted products.

Most cities now have a local farmers market. You can find a local market and market information at the Ga Farm  Bureau site linked here.
