Wild Rice & Hummus Collard Wraps
These Wild Rice & Hummus Collard Wraps are a great option for anyone who wants to eat healthy and especially beneficial for those of you who are active. They are easy to prepare, ready in the 20-minutes and can also be made well in advance.
- 2 collard greens leaves you can also use chard leaves
- 1/4 cup wild rice cooked
- 1/3 cup hummus preferably homemade
- 1 small zucchini cut lengthwise in about 1/2 inch slices
- 1 red bell pepper sliced
- 1 orange bell pepper sliced
Pick two medium-sized leaves of collard greens and lay them down flat with the backside up. Trim the stem lightly to make it easier to roll.
In a large pot bring water to a boil. Dip each leaf into the water and count to 10.Remove the leaf from water and pad it dry with a tea towel. Place both leaves with the backside up again and set aside.
In a bowl mix wild rice and hummus together. In the middle of each leaf spread 1/2 of the wild hummus mixture, top with couple slices of zucchini and a handful of bell peppers.
Wrap it up. Using your hands gently fold the top and bottom parts of the leaves inward while you roll the wrap, right to left, (very much like wrapping a burrito).
Cut in half. A serrated or very sharp knife works best. Enjoy!
You can eat the collard greens raw, so you prefer it raw just skip the second step.
