This may look complicated, but it’s truly quick and easy.

The only step that takes forethought (besides the shopping) is soaking the almonds overnight. The rest is a breeze, and it’s a fun snack, even for kids.

  1. Drain almonds thoroughly and place in a food processor, along with oil, basil, 4 teaspoons lime juice, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Process until well chopped and nearly smooth. Scrape into a small bowl, cover, and set aside.
  2. Place avocado flesh in a bowl, along with remaining 2 teaspoons lime juice and salt; mash to a smooth purée. Cover and set aside.
  3. Place grated carrot, red bell pepper, watercress, pea shoots or radish sprouts, bean sprouts, and scallions separately on a platter. Place chard leaves on a second platter. Serve with almond and avocado mixtures. Invite everyone to spread a small amount of avocado mixture on the underside of a Swiss chard leaf, place a nugget of almond mixture at one end, and then add small amounts of whichever vegetable fillings they choose; roll up and eat.
