Thai Tempeh Collard Green Wraps, vibrant veggies and toasted tempeh flavored with ginger, garlic and soy, all wrapped up in a luscious leaf!

Sorry the posts have been lacking lately.  Last week was school vacation week…nothing got done. Trying to keep two stir-crazy kids happy was a difficult challenge!  Thankfully, we had a few nice days that we were able to spend outside finding new hiking trails and helpful grandparents willing to give us some relief!  Lesson learned:  I will never go into February vacation without a plan of attack.  If we can’t get away, I will have an activity lined up for every day of the week instead of wanting to bang my head against the wall while the kids trash the house!

Amidst the chaos, we were able to fit in one super nutritious and beautiful meal…Thai Tempeh Collard Green Wraps!    This is a meal to feed two or you can use smaller wraps such as romaine leaves for an appetizer portion.  I used red bell peppers, mung bean sprouts, red cabbage and scallions but, don’t stop there!  Toss in your favorite fresh veggies…cucumbers, cauliflower “rice” and avocado would all taste great!  You can even add in baked sweet potato wedges or cooked quinoa for a heartier variation!

I used a prepared peanut sauce to save time, but making your own is easy!
