I can’t remember the day I switched from peanut butter to almond butter. I think I read an article in a magazine that “Almond butter is the new peanut butter” and I was lured in by the images of apples with big globs of almond butter on top.
I’ve never really looked back, although I do have peanut butter every once in a while.
Typically, thai wraps use a spicy peanut sauce, but, since I prefer almond (and I hope you do too!), I’ve created a thai almond butter sauce instead. You’re going to love it.
This recipe is easy, no cooking required and comes together in less than 20 minutes. It’s a great option to bring to work for lunch – just wrap tightly in tinfoil or paper and keep secure. It travels very well – and the almond sauce lasts at least 5 days in the refrigerator.
This one is vegan, dairy-free and so crunchy and delicious. The almond sauce is perfectly balanced with tanginess, sweetness and savoriness. I had to be careful not to take too many spoonfuls as I was tasting it – I have been known to polish off a tub of almond butter in a day or two.
It’s easy to assemble this wrap. First, spread out a heaping spoonful of the almond butter sauce:
Then, top with all the toppings! This part is totally up to you – feel free to add anything you’d like (scallions, chicken, edamame beans, tofu, quinoa, etc.) I went with some simple veggies, because I love the refreshing flavors alongside the creamy almond butter sauce:
And that’s it! If you’re afraid of the bitterness of the collard green wrap, don’t be – the almond butter sauce overpowers the taste of the raw collard green.
Also, I wanted to let you know that I have finally reorganized my “How to Spiralize” page so that it’s accessible as a drop-down menu. Check out the below screenshot and then take a look around – you may learn something new:
Also, I reorganized my Recipes page, took away the drop-down and made it like a Recipe Index, for easier navigation, especially on mobile devices:
Hope you like the new look… and this wrap!
