Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups with Peanut Sauce

Hand Holding Detox Rainbow Roll-Up.

Annnnd it’s Rainbow Roll-Up time!

If Rainbow Roll-Up doesn’t give you some association with a packaged, neon-colored fruit leather situation all wrapped up in a little paper coil, then who are you even? I’m having a moderately hard time separating these from the single greatest snack food of my childhood.

This is not that kind of rainbow roll-up, though. This is a rainbow roll-up that can earn the word DETOX in front of it, thanks to yummy and nutritional powerhouse foods like: carrots. chickpeas. curry. red cabbage. peanuts. dark leafy greens.

See, mom? I can eat like an adult after all.

Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups.

These Rainbow Roll-Ups were inspired by these roll ups which are similarly detox-friendly and equally as delicious but a little lacking in the beautiful colors department. I actually made THOSE roll-ups for a blog post, but then realized: I think I’d like to make a new version of these, and I’d like to give it some more color and crunch.

And maybe a little curry hummus.

And maybe a little (LOT) of peanut sauce for dipping.

If I had to tell the story of my experience with Detox Rainbow Rolls in photos, it would go like this:

And it would include one thousand heart-eye emojis.

That first bite? with the creamy, salty-sweet peanut sauce and the crunchy, cool veggies and the smear of thick, spicy curry hummus? Yes. It is every bit as satisfying as you’re imagining it.

Desk-lunch awesomeness is yours!

Description

Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups – with curry hummus and veggies in a collard leaf, dunked in peanut sauce! Most beautiful healthy desk lunch!


Ingredients

Rainbow Roll-Ups:

  • carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
  • red cabbage
  • curry hummus
  • cooked rice or quinoa (optional)
  • peanuts and cilantro
  • collard greens (leaf)

Peanut Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (tamari or coconut aminos if gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 clove garlic

Instructions

  1. Prep: Trim the stem/spine of the collard leaf – don’t cut it completely off, but just cut it down so that it’s nice and thin and pliable.
  2. Roll: Arrange your fillings on the collard leaf. Fold the ends in and roll from front to back, trying to keep everything in there nice and tight. Watch video for a visual example.
  3. Peanut Sauce: Run all the ingredients through a blender or food processor. Voila!

Notes

You can steam the collard leaves if you want to make them more pliable. I also found that just running the leaf under hot water or placing hot rice on it was enough to soften it just a little bit. These aren’t the greatest for making ahead, since the hummus can get a little watery once it sits with the veggies. I recommend prepping everything and then keeping it in the fridge and rolling a fresh one each morning or just before you eat it. They will hold together nicely with toothpicks! For a completely sugar free version of this recipe, use white distilled vinegar.
