  2. Toss together spinach, cabbage, and grains. Set aside.
  3. Lay out one sheet of nori on a sushi mat or large cutting board. Spread 1 teaspoon (or less) ume paste onto nori, layer a collard leaf, then add a few slices avocado. Add some vegetable/grain mixture, and roll tightly. Continue with remaining ingredients to make about 7 rolls.
