Prep your veggies and create an assembly line on your countertop, start with your collards, veg of choice, ground round mixture and top with sauce. Watch the video for full effect but should basically be enjoyed like a big wrap! Alternatively, you can place your veg, sauce and ground mixture on the table and assemble there, just depends on how many you think you and your family will be having.
I love eating this meal with a salad, some grains or crispy fries, because balance!
The peanut sauce lasts for up to 5 days in a tight sealed container in the fridge.
The ground round mixture will last up to 3-4 days in the fridge in a tight sealed container.
Store veggies and collards in a damp container for longer lasting crispness!
If you do not have ground round then use a cook french lentil and pulsed walnut mixture. A 1:1 ratio will work perfectly!
