This is off the website of one of the ladies here, I think the "Frugal Raw" lady, Mattye.
I wilted these in the dehydrator, BUT if prepared enough time ahead, the collards should wilt fine on their own - I'd prepare them in the morning and allow them to sit at room temp for the day if you don't have a dehydrator...
2 c. parsnips - riced
1 c. soaked sunflower seeds - coarse chopped
3/4 c. dried currants
2 tsp dried or 1 tbsp fresh mint
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp sea salt
Combine all filling ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
Use collard leaves for the dolmas wraps.
dip for leaves:
equal parts of lemon juice and olive oil on a deep plate
Prior to filling the leaves, bathe each side as you go in the olive oil and lemon juice mixture, coating each leaf well. Lay on a cutting board and fill with a couple of tables spoons of filling. Roll tightly and place on mesh dehydrator screen. Continue with the filling leaves until all filling is used. If desired/necessary, dehydrate at 110 degrees for 1 hour to speed up the wilting of the collard leaves.
Here is one from Ani Phyo's website. She also does a demonstration of this recipe on youtube.com.
I have a book called the raw greek with some great recipes in it. Here is the link.

You are always sweet for sharing and coming to the rescue. Thanks bunches.
The raw greek link you shared recipes look like they are super simple and not seeing her go crazy with nuts. Does most of her recipes have limited nuts? I'm going to subscribe to her newsletter now.
Thanks. Think cauliflower would work in place of parsnips?
My neighbor has tons of grape leaves for wrapping. Sadly the grapes are not ready yet. If someone else doesn't get there before me I could have lots of eating fresh organic green/purple grapes for me.
Has anyone tried usisng grape leaves? How? Taste good?
You are welcome!!
The book does have many recipes with nuts, but also many without. Its not a real big book, but since I knew nothing about greek food I figured I would learn something from it.
Im sure cauliflower would work fine instead of parsnips. Good luck!!

I've made Ani's recipe 3 times and only 1 of those times did I do nuts. I am trying not to eat so many and it tastes fine without em. Good luck!

Thanks bunches. I have to figure out the grape leaf method too. I'm sure I can find collards around this area that has all.
