Recipe request from Campbell family for Plant-Based Cooking Summit
In 2016, I was asked to come up with a special vegetable wrap for the Plant-Based Cooking Summit with Dr. Colin Campbell’s family.
The wrap I created was a Collard Green Veggie Wrap and to go with it, I came up with this vegan peanut dipping sauce. The wraps and sauce were a huge hit at the event. The participants love that there was no cooking and it could be ready in 10-minutes.
Nutrition in peanuts
Peanuts are not true nuts, but instead belong to the legume family, which also includes beans and lentils. You can enjoy them raw or prepare them in a variety of ways, including boiled, dry roasted and oil roasted.
You can also crush them to make peanut butter or use them in a variety of savory and sweet dishes.
A single 1-ounce serving of raw peanuts has 7.31 grams of protein and 4.57 grams of carbohydrates, of which 2.4 grams are fiber. —LiveStrong

PB2 lower-fat peanut sauce option
One great thing about this recipe is that it can be made with either natural peanut butter or with PB2 to reduce the fat.
What is PB2?
PB2 is made by pressing out most of the natural oils from roasted peanuts and then grinding the nuts into a powder. The result is a powdered peanut product that is packed with flavor but contains 85% fewer calories from fat. It can be used as a powder or re-hydrated with water to form a paste.
Other great wraps to try
- 2 Tbsp Bragg's liquid aminos, or soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp rice vinegar, or red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp minced garlic, (I use the kind in jar)
- 3 Tbsp natural peanut butter, or 6 Tbsp PB2 + 3 Tbsp water
- 1/4 cup almond milk, more if needed to thin
- 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
- 1 tsp Thai chili paste, or 1/4 tsp Sriracha
- Combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until smooth.
- If needed, heat mixture in microwave for 30 seconds to allow for easier blending. If it needs to be thinned a bit, just add a little more almond milk.
- Serve as a dip/sauce for wraps (Collard Green Wrap and Thai Spring Roll recipe links below), over noodles, or as a salad dressing.
