This wrap sandwich is packed with all kinds of seasonal fresh veggies such as fine cut sticks of carrot, strips of red bell pepper and English cucumber, finely chopped red cabbage, some dandelion greens, micro greens and bean sprouts; plenty of crunch, fiber and virtually every color of the rainbow. This colorful combo is then garnished with some fresh cilantro and green onion for an extra bit of freshness, and a few crumbs of chopped roasted peanuts for nutty flavor.
Chef Janine drizzles her house made red curry is on the finely cut grilled pork strips. All this goodness is wrapped in a soft blanched collard green leaf, thus making this wrap totally gluten free. The creamy peanut dipping sauce made with peanut butter, coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar, lime juice, lemongrass, ginger, and sweetened with monk fruit sweetener makes this combination downright addictive. Once you bite into this protein-packed goodness, you’ll quickly see why it is one of Chef Janine's favorite wrap sandwiches.
