Turkey Guacamole Collard Wraps with Cheezy Cashew Cream


Recently I’ve been inspired to eat more vegetables.

I have to admit: I’m not the best veggie eater.

There are still days when I realize at 4pm that I haven’t eaten a single vegetable.


I eat lots of nutrient dense foods like butter from grass-fed cows, raw milk cheese, grass-fed beef, and high quality eggs…so I get a good amount of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E & K.

But I sometimes struggle to get the water-soluble vitamins from vegetables.

SO. Long story short, I’ve been working on enjoyable ways to get more vegetable nutrients into my life.

Like cauliflower rice.

And collard green wraps.

I lightly steamed my collard green leaves until the steams were green and the leaves were soft.

I filled my collard leaves with roasted turkey, guacamole and salsa– all made in-house at Whole Foods Market Somerville.

To give the wraps even more flavor and some pizzazz, I made a “Cheezy” Cashew Cream sauce– a recipe that I also picked up from the Somerville Whole Foods. (I spend a lot of time there;)

The “cheeze” comes from nutritional yeast.

These are SO easy to make.


Just wrap up everything like a burrito.

Total time
Turkey, guac and salsa wrapped in collard leaves with a Cheezy Cashew Cream inspired by Whole Foods Market Somerville
Recipe type: Lunch
Serves: 1
  • 2 to 4 Big collard green leaves
  • Guacamole
  • Salsa
  • ½ cup cashews, soaked in warm water for 20 minutes
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • Pinch of sea salt
  1. Lightly steam your collard green leaves until the veins and stem are green and the leaves are soft.
  2. Move the leaves from the pot to a cutting board or other flat surface and crush the stem-- this makes them easier to wrap.
  3. Lay your innards on the leaves (the turkey, guac and salsa OR whatever you want to wrap).
  4. Wrap 'em up.
  5. Once your cashews have soaked for about 20 minutes, place them, water and all, into a blender or food processor along with the nutritional yeast, sea salt, red pepper flakes and garlic.
  6. Blend or process until smooth.
  7. Serve your wraps with the cheezy cashew cream on the side for dipping.
  8. Dip and enjoy!
