Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

You can eat the collard greens raw, so you prefer it raw just skip the second step.
