Quinoa and Veggie Collard Wraps

Ingredients:

  • 2 collard leaves
  • 1/4 cup hummus, divided
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa, divided
  • Veggies for topping (cucumber, carrot, tomato)

Instructions:

  1. Rinse and dry your collard leaves.
  2. Chop off the large stem at the bottom and shave off the thicker part that goes up into the leaf. This is so it will be easier to wrap.
  3. If the collard leaf is too bitter, quickly blanch the leaves in boiling water before wrapping. Drop it in a pot of boiling water for 10-15 seconds and then transfer to an ice bath to let cool.
  4. Lay the collard leaf down stem side up. Spread two tablespoons of hummus in the center of each leaf, top with 2 tablespoons of quinoa and desired vegetables.
  5. To wrap, turn the collard so the stem and hummus-veggie pile is perpendicular to your body.
  6. Fold in the sides, fold the side closest to you over the veggies, and keep rolling until everything is nice and snug.
  7. Slice in half on the diagonal, and secure with toothpicks if needed.
  8. Enjoy 🙂
