Method: 

For cilantro-tahini dip, combine tahini, broth, tamari and juice in a food processor; blend together. Stir in cilantro before serving.

For spring rolls, heat oil in a medium skillet and cook portobellos with lime juice and tamari until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and cool to room temperature. Combine portobellos, rice sticks, cabbage, blanched collards and chopped cilantro. Add 1/4 cup cilantro-tahini dip; mix well.

Place one inch of water in a large, shallow pan over low heat. Place 1 sheet of rice paper in water. Submerge sheet until soft, fabout 2 minutes. Drain and place rice paper sheet on flat surface. Spoon about 1/2 cup of portobello mixture toward bottom edge or corner (if using square sheets), leaving about 1 to 2 inches of a bottom edge. Fold up bottom corner or edge over filling while tucking in filling. Roll until about midway then fold sides over filling, pushing in filling to form a tightly secure cylinder. Repeat to make 12 total spring rolls.

Serve, sliced on the diagonal, with cilantro-tahini dip.
