Sunflower Seed Cheese Collard Wraps

I've mentioned these wraps in my posts before. I like to make them and take them to work to snack on. They're really simple to make and they're delicious. Wash and dry a collard leaf. Cut the leaf in half by removing the stem. Place the outside of the leaf down, spread the sunflower seed cheese across the leaf and then place the cut veggies of your liking on the bottom part of the leaf, leaving about half an inch empty. I used thinly sliced red pepper, zucchini and avocado along with some sprouts and sliced olives. Then roll the leaf up tightly.

The sunflower seed cheese recipe originally came from RAWvolution by Matt Amsden, but I've made changes to it.

2 cups raw sunflower seeds, soaked for 4 hours, rinsed and dried
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons Nama Shoyu
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup water

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add more water if necessary. Enjoy!

  1. DEFINITELY going to make these soon!!

  2. The original recipe says to grind dry sunflower seeds to a powder and then add the other ingredients, but I find that the cheese comes out a little gritty. Delicious, but gritty.
