There are few appetizers I love more than the springroll. Here's a raw veggieful version that uses collard leaves as a flavourful wrapper with a bit of a crunch. Add in some marinated enoki mushrooms or sea veggie noodles for an added dimension of texture and taste.

1 tbsp ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, derooted, minced
2 tbsp nama shoyu

Marinate the mushrooms for 15-30 min. Squeeze out excess marinate back into bowl and set marinate aside.
Put ingredients in the middle of the collard leaf and roll. Wrap and secure the roll with a strip of seaweed.
Use marinate for dipping. For a richer sauce, add in some nut butter or tahini.
