Annnnd it’s Rainbow Roll-Up time!

If Rainbow Roll-Up doesn’t give you some association with a packaged, neon-colored fruit leather situation all wrapped up in a little paper coil, then who are you even? I’m having a moderately hard time separating these from the single greatest snack food of my childhood.

This is not that kind of rainbow roll-up, though. This is a rainbow roll-up that can earn the word DETOX in front of it, thanks to yummy and nutritional powerhouse foods like: carrots. chickpeas. curry. red cabbage. peanuts. dark leafy greens.

See, mom? I can eat like an adult after all.

How To Make Our Rainbow Roll-Ups:

Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups.

These Rainbow Roll-Ups were inspired by these roll ups which are similarly detox-friendly and equally as delicious but a little lacking in the beautiful colors department. I actually made THOSE roll-ups for a blog post, but then realized: I think I’d like to make a new version of these, and I’d like to give it some more color and crunch.

And maybe a little curry hummus.

And maybe a little (LOT) of peanut sauce for dipping.

If I had to tell the story of my experience with Detox Rainbow Rolls in photos, it would go like this:

And it would include one thousand heart-eye emojis.

That first bite? with the creamy, salty-sweet peanut sauce and the crunchy, cool veggies and the smear of thick, spicy curry hummus? Yes. It is every bit as satisfying as you’re imagining it.

Desk-lunch awesomeness is yours!

Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups with Peanut Sauce

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 45 minutes (lots of chopping)
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Detox Rainbow Roll-Ups – with curry hummus and veggies in a collard leaf, dunked in peanut sauce! Most beautiful healthy desk lunch!


Units Scale

Rainbow Roll-Ups:

  • carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
  • red cabbage
  • curry hummus
  • cooked rice or quinoa (optional)
  • peanuts and cilantro
  • collard greens (leaf)

Peanut Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (tamari or coconut aminos if gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 clove garlic


  1. Prep: Trim the stem/spine of the collard leaf – don’t cut it completely off, but just cut it down so that it’s nice and thin and pliable.
  2. Roll: Arrange your fillings on the collard leaf. Fold the ends in and roll from front to back, trying to keep everything in there nice and tight. Watch video for a visual example.
  3. Peanut Sauce: Run all the ingredients through a blender or food processor. Voila!


You can steam the collard leaves if you want to make them more pliable. I also found that just running the leaf under hot water or placing hot rice on it was enough to soften it just a little bit. These aren’t the greatest for making ahead, since the hummus can get a little watery once it sits with the veggies. I recommend prepping everything and then keeping it in the fridge and rolling a fresh one each morning or just before you eat it. They will hold together nicely with toothpicks! For a completely sugar free version of this recipe, use white distilled vinegar.

    bad foodie confession….i’ve always been so afraid to try collard wraps!!! that fear is out the window now because these look INSANE. love love love the crunchy veggies & the curry hummus. this is the kind of food that reminds me of a summer girls night! xx

  2. Pinch of Yum Logo

    This looks SO yum!!! I’ve never had a wrap with collard greens. I’ve only eaten them cooked. Are they tough? Or is softening them a must to avoid that?

  3. Pinch of Yum Logo

    These look awesome! However, as an RD, I had to cringe at the “detox” title. This great recipe doesn’t need it to get noticed!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Same, awful buzzword that doesn’t have any truth to it. This recipe looks so pretty though!

  4. Pinch of Yum Logo

    These look really delicious! Any tips on how to speed up all that chopping for the veggies? (I’m lazy like that)

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      I think you could use a food processor to chop some of it (especially the carrots!). For the cabbage, you could even get a coleslaw mix that’s ready to go. Hope that helps!

    2. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Try Prep Solutions Quarter veggie cutter by Progessive. I have one and it’s awesome!

  5. Pinch of Yum Logo

    This is uber-delicious, mostly thanks to the curry sauce and peanut sauce. But I did one thing differently. My husband hates when sandwiches fall apart, and things fall out of wraps, so I put a stretchy rice paper wrapper around the collard leaf to keep it all intact. Worked like a charm!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Low carb for me so I use a foil sheet to wrap! Peel away like a burrito or cut in half when ready to eat!

  6. Pinch of Yum Logo

    This is a handheld salad! Definitely my favorite recipe I’ve seen this week! I’m definitely into veggies but I’m not so much into salad, LOVE this! the video is great too it makes it seem actually doable!

  7. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I made this – but totally deconstructed it, so it was basically a spring roll salad. Used rice noodles and torn lettuce as the base with a mango red chile dressing. Added all the veggies and drizzled the peanut sauce over all. My family says this recipe is a keeper!

  8. Pinch of Yum Logo

    This look fantastic – can’t wait to try it! Any idea of how many people it serves? Thanks!

    This roll looks so fresh and delicious with the curry hummus and peanut dipping sauce. Great meal for a light lunch.
