Collard Walnut Burrito Madness

Collard Walnut Burrito Madness

Yes… I’m sure you are wondering how a collard and walnuts will translate to burrito.. so read the following with an open adventurous mind… and if the thought interest you, why not try once? Classic Yellow Smiley Face Clip art picture.


This recipe is one of my favorite fast raw recipes that is satisfying and healthy. As always you can modify when needed.

2 Cups of Soaked Raw Walnuts

1 Cup of Soaked Organic Sun-dried Tomatoes   (Organic will ensure no preservatives)

3 T of Lemon Juice

Favorite Mexican Spice, Cayenne, Chipotle, ect..

3 T Minced Shallot, Garlic, and/or Green Onion



In a food processor, p
ulse the tomatoes, lemon juice, spices, and onions/garlic. Mix to make a chunky paste. Then slowly add the walnuts, still just pulsing. Be aware to not over-process or under-process, so with that being said start with less pulsing. You may have to scrap the sides of the food processor every few pulses to mix evenly. This delicious ‘walnut taco meat’ will last in the fridgesealed in an air-tight container for a few days.




Now, are you wondering where the collard comes in…. ?

De-stem the collard leaves. I like to use a few leaves to make a strong burrito


wrap. Then place taco meat in the center of the collard leaf. Now here’s the fun part… if you have time to make salsa and guacamole, that’s an awesome idea.  If you don’t, just chop up favorite veggies to add to the burrito. I like to use cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, onions, greens, spices, ect.. Anything your heart desires. <3 Definitely don’t forget the avocado, especially if you’re in the Avo Love Club! 🙂

Layer all the toppings, then roll both ends of the collard up, and wrap like a burrito. Always options to use any type of wrap but the collard is surprisingly delicious. (It’s usually nice to rub a little oil and salt on the leaves if the bitterness is overwhelming.)




*Benefits of soaking nuts and seeds*

  • Enzyme inhibitors get neutralized.
  • The amount of vitamins your body can absorb increases.
  • Phytic acid, which inhibits the absorption of vital minerals, is reduced.

Soaking times vary with the nut. Generally the more dense the nut, the longer the soaking time.

Besides containing manganese and fiber, walnuts also are a rich source of healthy omega 3 fatty acids, which are responsible for most of the nut’s health effects, according to the World’s Healthiest Foods website. Consuming a walnut-rich diet provides a range of health benefits, from improving bone health to protecting against cardiovascular disease.
