Raw veggie wraps with tahini-yogurt sauce

These crunchy & creamy little wraps are incredibly healthy but are so tasty and delicious, you'll never miss the bad stuff. The raw veggies are a rainbow of colors & nutrients, and the sauce...well, the sauce is something special.  You could use it on anything - as a salad dressing, on any sandwich, as a dip, on gotsta try it.

I used whole grain tortillas to wrap up all the goodness, but another option is to use whole collard green leaves.  I learned this from my raw foodist friends at RAWvolution - a raw food restaurant & home food delivery service.  I styled a couple really awesome books for them - check them out...

If you want to go raw with the sauce as well, just omit the yogurt - it's delicious either way.  Whatever you choose with this recipe, you will feel really great about yourself when you eat :)

tahini-yogurt sauce:

1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
1/4 c. tahini
1/4 c. plain greek yogurt

1/4 c. each: cilantro, basil, mint leaves

4, 8” whole grain tortillas, or whole collard leaves (for wrapping)

In a blender or mini food processor, combine all ingredients for the tahini-yogurt sauce.  Blend until smooth.

To make wraps, divide veggies between 4 tortillas or collard leaves.  Top with 2 tablespoons of tahini-yogurt sauce) and wrap like a burrito.  Serve with additional sauce on the side for dipping.
