I’m so glad they made their way into Laura’s book- Raw Vegan Not Gross!

Now I can have as many as I want…which is all of them.

Each cabbage leaf carries a few spoonfuls of an amazing crunchy/spicy/sweet almond walnut spread as well as carrots, red peppers, jicama mango and cilantro. My meat eating husband was surprise how good/filling these were. The best part is that I didn’t have to turn my oven on and everything is so incredibly fresh, satisfying and most importantly- healthy!  That nut spread is definitely going in my meal prep rotation. 

Let’s gather our ingredients.

We blend all the ingredients for the spread. I use my Vitamix! 

We leave out the cashews for this part.

YES. Chunky spread. You could make it a little thinner, but I like the crunch of the cashews so I left mine at this consistency.
