Raw Mexi Wraps

Catch all, Entree, Raw | November 21, 2016 | By

This meal is light and fresh but is packed with flavor and has enough fat to be very satisfying. It is super easy to throw together if you keep vegan nut cheese on hand. I used macadamia nut cheese for this one, but cashew, almond, sunflower or a combination will work well too. Or you can do without  the cheese and it is still very yummy! I used a collard wrap here but you can also use a rice paper wrap (not technically raw), a raw coconut or tortilla wrap, or another leafy green.
