Collard Green Wraps With Black Bean Hummus, Quinoa, Avocado and Tomato (Vegan + GF)

Just looking at the title how healthy does that sound??? These wraps taste and feel super healthy, but do not skimp on flavor. Collard greens are incredibly nutrient dense and a lot of people are now using them as gluten-free wraps instead of flour. They are low in calories and rich in nutrients such as Vitamin A, K and folate. I’ve tried using collard green wraps both raw and blanched, and I have to say I enjoy blanched greens much more. The raw greens, were tough and hard to chew and felt too fibrous for me. I know many people in the raw camp, but it’s not really for me. Blanching them is super easy  and they become this vibrant green color, which is truly a delight for the eyes.  Blanch them just for a few seconds each, dry and store.

Step 1: Blanch the greens.

Here is a step by step guide that I found to be helpful.

Step 2: Fill with your favorite toppings.

I used Spicy Black Bean Hummus (see previous post), cooked quinoa, red bell pepper, red onion, ripe avocado, tomato, and a squirt of lime.

Step 3: Wrap.

Fold the edges in and wrap. I find these wraps are much easier to hold together than wheat or flour wraps.
