Shiitake and Couscous Collard Wraps Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • collard greens 
  • shiitake mushrooms 
  • kohlrabi 
  • garlic & onion 
  • sage, oregano, & mint 
  • couscous (or grain, like rice) 
  • cooking oil 
  • tahini 
  • apple cider vinegar 
  • ground turmeric 
  • salt & pepper 

Directions:

  1. Cook your couscous (or grain) and set aside to cool. 
  2. Sauté mushrooms, garlic, and onion until they’re tender. Let cool. 
  3. Finely chop kohlrabi and herbs together and mix mushrooms, kohlrabi, herbs, and a few pinches of turmeric into the couscous. 
  4. Then whisk your tahini with equal parts water and apple cider vinegar until you have a slurry (add liquid slowly – first you’ll get a stiff, white paste, and then a creamy slurry). 
  5. Mix this (to taste) with your couscous and veggies. Set aside to marinate a bit. 
  6. Now boil some salt water in a pot and get your collards ready. Use the stem as a handle to dip and swirl the leaf in the boiling water – just for 15 seconds or so! Then remove and cool. 
  7. De-stem and you’re ready to roll 😉 Place your filling on one side of the leaf, fold in edges, and roll away from you toward the edge of the leaf, not towards you. Keep it all tight, and the damp leaf should hold itself in place! .
  8. Fill with absolutely anything and have fun experimenting and wrapping!
