Detox Green Rolls

Christina Pirello | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 6 people

Chilled, these beauties make a refreshing snack. You’ll find yourself whipping them up whether you are cleansing or not! Prep tip: After detox, add some good fats with a strip of avocado in each roll.

Directions
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and separately blanch each vegetable in the order listed. Cook each until just tender (carrots, 1 minute; cabbage and collards, 30 seconds; watercress, 10 seconds); remove with tongs. Immediately plunge each into ice water to stop cooking. Drain well.
  2. To assemble rolls, place 2–3 collard leaves on a bamboo sushi mat or tea towel. Top with 2–3 cabbage leaves. Then place a thick strip of watercress and 2 carrot spears on cabbage, closest to you. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper and lemon zest. Roll, jelly-roll style, using the mat or towel as a guide. When completely rolled, squeeze gently to expel excess water and to seal the roll. Lay on a dry cutting board and slice crosswise into 1-inch-thick rounds; arrange on a serving platter.
  3. Whisk together dressing, adjusting salt and pepper to taste. To eat, dip each roll in sauce and seeds.
