Cilantro Cashew Collard Rolls with Pineapple Goji Dipping Sauce

It is so easy for me to come up with raw recipes that are sweet treats. Raw lends itself to delicious sweet eats. It is my goal with this blog to come up with some savory recipes as well though. Over the weekend I assigned the food-obsessed part of my brain the task of coming up with a satisfying savory dish. These lovely little rolls are the results. They were happily devoured by my friends and family!

Cilantro Cashew Collard Rolls with Pineapple Goji Dipping Sauce

Cashew Spread:
2 cups Raw Cashews, soaked
3 limes, juiced
1/4 cup unfiltered olive oil
3 cloves garlic
2 tbs. nama shoyu or wheat-free tamari
large knob of ginger, chopped
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil

Grind cashews in food processor until really broken down. Add remaining ingredients except cilantro & basil. Process until smooth. Add cilantro and basil and pulse food processor until herbs are mixed in but not completely smooth.

1 batch cashew spread
1 bunch large collard greens
1 tbs. unfiltered olive oil
pinch of himalayan pink salt
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 cucumber, sliced into strips
1/2 cup kim chee

Wash and dry collard leaves. Cut the stem from each collard leaf, keeping each half of the leaf for the wrap. I save the collard stems for my morning juice! Mix olive oil & salt in a small dish. Rub each collard leaf half with a little oil & salt. Once all of the greens are prepared place one collard leaf half on a cutting board. Spread some cashew spread along 1/3 of of the leaf. Pile on a few slices of cucumber & red pepper and a nice clump of kim chee. Carefully roll the leaf around fillings, set aside and finish the rest of the rolls.

Pineapple Goji Dipping Sauce

1/2 pineapple
1 knob of ginger
1/4 cup Goji Berries
2 tsp. hot pepper sauce or a pinch or cayenne
1/2 tsp. salt

Juice the pineapple & ginger. Soak goji berries in juice for 30 minutes. Process gojis and juice along with remaining ingredients in high speed blender until sauce is smooth.
