Raw Cashew Mango Cabbage Wraps. Talk about eating the rainbow! I have a new favorite raw meal with these cool and crisp wraps.
I’m so excited for summer foods. I’m ready…right now! I do love my soup season, but eating light summer meals is definitely my favorite time of year. My local Wholefoods has been selling mangos by the case! I have been putting mangos on and in everything. I love the sweetness mangos give my raw cashew mango cabbage wraps.
I decided to use small purple cabbage leaves to create my wrap. The cabbage has the perfect crunch and holds up to a lot of fillings without falling apart.
Raw cashew mango cabbage wraps are filled with curry spiced cashews layered with colorful veggies topped with a mango tahini sauce with a kick from cayenne pepper. Mango and avocado slices and a creamy sweetness.
Peel and slice veggies in strips, ribbons, or whatever will make the wraps look beautiful and layer well.
Make the cashew filling by mixing pitted dates, the juice, and zest of 1/2 a lime, curry powder, coconut amino sauce, salt and pepper in a small bowl of a food processor.
Blend until mixture is small and a bit chunky.
Add 1 cup raw cashews.
Pulse 12-15 times until the mixture is a chunky consistency. Do not overmix. Set aside. The mixture can be made in advance. Cover and refrigerate, but bring to room temp to serve.
To make the Mango Tahini sauce: Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until mixture is very creamy and smooth.
This can be made 2 days in advance. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
To assemble: To a cabbage leaf, add 2-3 tablespoons cashew mixture. Layer with ribbons of cucumbers, mangos, carrots, red peppers, avocado slices, Thai basil, and cilantro. Drizzle with plenty of the creamy mango sauce.
Enjoy eating a rainbow of flavors and color. Keep praying for sunshine.
Can you believe Utah will be getting more snow this week? I’m grateful but SO ready spring.
