Preparation Time30 minutes

Serves1 to 2

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh basil
1/2 tablespoon Green Onion chopped
1/2 cup seedless cucumber peeled chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove fresh garlic
3/8 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh basil
2 teaspoons tamari
1/2 cup raw walnuts
2 tablespoons Green Onion chopped
1 or 2 cloves fresh garlic
1 bunch Collard greens washed, dried, and stems removed
1/2 cup raw pecans
Assorted red pepper, cucumber, mushrooms, celery, tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1. Add all the filling ingredients (pecans, walnuts, Tamari, 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons green onion, 2 tablespoons basil) to a food processor fitted with an S blade and pulse until it has a smooth paste-like consistency.

2. Place all dressing ingredients (3/8 cup olive oil, lemon juice, cucumber, salt, cayenne, 1 clove garlic, 1/2 tablespoon green onion, 1 1/2 teaspoons basil), in a blender and process until it's smooth and creamy.

3. Take one half of a cleaned collard green leaf with the stem removed and spread some of the pecan filling across the entire length. You don't need to spread the filling very thick.

4. Drizzle some dressing over the top of the filling on the leaf and use your knife to spread it evenly over the top.

5. Slice up additional vegetables such as red pepper, cucumber, and mushrooms. Layer the vegetables lengthwise across the collard green leaf near the widest end.

6. Roll up the collard leaf starting at the wider end and moving towards the tip.

7. Serve pecan wraps with sliced vegetables on the side and extra dressing in a dish for dipping.
