When I met Alissa in November, she was really excited about going back on Tyra Banks’ show because of the results one of her ‘team’ was getting for the Diet Wars feature.

If you didn’t get to see it, check out the video below.

    Oh my goodness – this looks so appealing and delicious!!! I just happened upon your site today and I am so glad and happy that I did. I am so impressed with this recipe I had to get all of your ebooks!!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!!! Can’t wait to make!!! I have been building up my raw food kitchen. I recently got an omega vert juicer and a vitamix. I would like to get the automatic sprouter and also a food dehydrator. There must be a way to dehydrate in the oven in the meantime. These wraps look awesome!!! I recently had my first raw wrap filled with cashew butter, avocado, sunflower sprouts, beets, alfalfa sprouts wrapped in an dehydrated onion wrap. That onion wrap was one of the most delicious things I have ever had and it complemented the whole meal. In my searches for wraps is how I came across you! Thanks again for sharing your recipes!!!

    Thank you this looks awesome! i will substitute the tortilla portion with a huge collard green leaf to wrap the veggie in. (..I do not own a dehydrater yet).

    Hi Russel – I am allergic to zucchini (all squash) – what other things could I use in the wrap recipe instead?

    Russell, I really appreciate your advice on buying kitchen equipment. The Joyce Chen Mandoline that you showed us, has just arrived. It’s lovely.
    Could you be a bit more specific about the knives?

    Dear Russel,

    Thank you for the payment options. We have a little boy who we are recovering from autism. Every penny counts. Thank you for providing us with the payment options.
    I have been struggling to find nutritious recipes. Yes, I love your books, well presented and informative.

    Hi Russell , have made these delicious bites many times and they are loved by my friends and family as well as myself . I am away from home a bit over the festive period and want to make these for a party …. how long would they keep if made before I left or can I freeze them ? 
    Thank you for all your inspiration .

    Thank you Russell for providing us with a young thai coconut free recipe. I can’t get them and now that I know they are dipped in pesticide wouldn’t use them if I could. Falafel and hummus are big favorites of mine and I look forward to trying this recipe. I already said thank you but want to say it again!!!

      Hi Glenda, thanks. Young coconuts are covered in a preservative, not a pesticide, as far as I’m aware. I can’t see how that would get into the actual water itself, so I just wanted to share that with you.

    I just made this recipe and had wonderful reviews. I’m wondering about the wraps as i was surprised that it made only 2 lg wraps. Is this correct? It was great and I will make again. I also made the avocado/lime soup. A keeper for sure.

    You’re so wonderfully thorough! It’s like having you in the kitchen helping me through all the steps. This looks scrumptious!

    Bought all the ingredients to make this today :) so excited to try it. They were out of dill at the store, can I substitute for something else or maybe leave it out? Also how many servings does this make?

    Thank you! One of my kids is allergic to coconut and cashews, and unfortunately a lot of raw recipes are dependent on those ingredients. I made the lasagne for Father’s Day and my family loved it! Can’t wait to try this one.

    Can you substitute other veggies for the zucchini, such as spinach, or carrots, or sun-dried tomatoes that have been reconstituted? Just looking for a way to add some variety. I eat wraps on a daily basis! Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.

      If you’re talking about all raw food recipes, then generally yes.

      I tend not so soak pine nuts, but everything else for 4 hours as a guide.  I also soak them whilst in the fridge, just in case I forget about them or can’t get back to use them.

    I’m very excited to try this recipe this weekend – waiting for my Excaliber Dehydrator to be delivered by Fedex as I write this!  I’m having a raw party next Wed and making this recipe – how many does it serve?

    This looks delicious.  I can’t wait to get a dehydrator so I can make my wraps.  I’m in Bali now, and raw food is much harder to come by than I imagined, especially being on a budget.  Your recipes inspire me and make me drool!

    The second girl was “ignored” (edited) because she didn’t follow the diet, she didn’t lose weight, and she had a major attitude.

    The other raw girl lost the most weight of everyone!! She was the real winner. However, because the key was the TOTAL weight loss, which was supposed to prove which was the best diet “method” — another team won.

    Aaagh! Who won?!!

    Alissa’s first girl looks amazing, but your heart has to go out to the second… poor thing, she’s just completely ignored! And on international TV…!

    Go Alissa though…!

    Great idea! Even when you do get a dehydrator, you’ll probably use the collard leaf when you don’t want to spend too long preparing wraps. This is for the fun and a treat!

    A little thicker than you had them :) Seriously though, a little bit of trial and error is always needed. It’s difficult to give you an exact thickness, because it’s not really measurable.
