For the Wraps


  • 4 collard green leaves
  • 8 ounces tempeh
  • 1/2 cups garlic hummus
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 3 roma tomatoes
  • 2 large carrots

Spicy Almond Butter Sauce


  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/8 cup sesame oil
  • 1/8 water
  • 3 tbsp sriracha
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Step 1

    To prepare the collard greens, you'll first want to cut off the thick stems. To do this, cut along the thick spine of the collard green till about 2/3 of the way up the leaf. Then cut it off. Afterward, trim the spine by using a sharp knife to slice the stem horizontally. This will help to flatten your wrap.

  • Step 2

    Next, prepare a bowl or saucepan with boiling water. Dip the collard green into the boiling water for about 15 seconds. The leaf will start to turn a darker green. Then dip the wrap into a bowl of cold water for about 10 seconds and then pat dry with a towel.

  • Step 3

    Lastly, lay the collard green onto a plate and place a paper towel on top to help with the drying process. Repeat for the rest of the wraps.

  • Step 4

    To prepare the tempeh, slice it into about 1/4 inch thick slices. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a saucepan and then lay the tempeh flat on top. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until slightly browned. Then add in 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce and coat the tempeh in it. Cook for another 2-3 minutes on each side or until the tempeh looks done. Be careful to avoid burning the tempeh.

  • Step 5

    Then slice the onion, tomatoes, and avocado. Shred the carrots.

  • Step 6

    On one of the collard green wraps, spread on some of the hummus. Then add 3-4 slices of tempeh and layer with the tomatoes, onion, carrots, and avocado. Roll the wrap like a burrito and serve!

  • Step 7

    To prepare the almond butter sauce, add all of the ingredients into a food processor and then blend until creamy!
