  1. Heat veggies for about 20 min or until beets and sweet potatoes are tender.
  2. While your veggies are roasting, pickle your cucumber, onion and carrots.
  3. Heat rice vinegar on the stove, add sugar and 2 TBSP of salt. Mix until dissolved.
  4. Pour mixture into mason jar and add your veggies.
  5. Next we’re going to blanch our collard green leaves and prepare them to be wraps.
  6. Wash collard green leaves thoroughly, then  we’ll want to cut out the stem to allow them to roll easily. Cut a V into the bottom of the leave so that thick stem portion is removed.
  7. At this point cook your 2cups of rice as instructed. I use the 90 second microwavable rice to save time ha.
  8. To blanch the leaves, we’ll put them in simmering water for 30 seconds then drop them in a bowl of ice water. Bring about 4 cups of water to a strong simmer. Place leaf in water for 30 seconds and then place in cold water. When the next leaf is ready to be put in the cold water, I move the leaf that was in the water to a plate covered in paper towel so it can be dry off. Continue process till all leaves have been blanched.
  9. Your veggies should be roasted, pickled and blanched at this point.
