  • 2 tsp vegan chicken boullionwe use Jada Chicken Salt
  • 2tsp dried thyme
  • 1tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4cup water or vegetable broth
  1. Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add water or broth and bring to a strong simmer. Add garlic, onions, and scallions and saute for about 5 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Add all spices, sauces, and sweeteners to the pan. Mix until well combined and simmering.
  3. Add chickpeas and cauliflower to the pan. Stir until well coated with the fricassee sauce. Reduce to medium-low heat and cook for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove lid and increase heat to medium-high. Saute for about another five minutes until liquids in the pan have reduce by half. Turn off heat and set aside.
  5. Thoroughly wash collard green leaves with water and cut stems from the bottoms of the leaves. Place leaves in a large dish. Bring about 6 cups of water to a boil. Carefully ladle the hot water into the dish until the leaves are completely covered. Allow to soak for about a minute until leaves are bright green and pliable. Drain and rinse the collard greens in cold water immediately and lay on clean tea towels to dry.
  6. To assemble the wraps, lay one collard green leaf on a plate. Spoon about ⅓ cup of Fricassee Chickpeas and Cauliflower into the center. You can also add a variety of fillings like shredded cabbage, quinoa & beans, roasted plantains, or roasted sweet potatoes. Fold the base and tip of the collard green in towards the center – they should overlap the filling by 1-2 inches on either side.  Take the long end of the wrap and roll it like a burrito. When you are finished rolling, place the wrap seam-side-down on the plate.
  7. This dish can be served immediately or made in advance and served chilled.
