A healthy grain-free lunch wrap

I love a class wrap or burrito, but some days I just want something a little bit lighter, fresher and packed with veggies. Cue these collard wraps!

These collard wraps are made with a variety of rainbow veggies, sprouts and hummus for a healthy wrap that is pretty much like eating a salad…but more fun 😉

These wraps are:

  • Grain-free, low-carb and can be made keto-friendly
  • Naturally vegan and gluten-free
  • Packed full of nutritious veggies!

Can you eat collard greens raw?

Collard greens can be eaten raw, just like lettuce, but some people prefer their collard greens slightly steamed.

Raw collard greens can be a little tough and fibrous. They can also have a slight bitter taste to them, so if you prefer a softer texture and more mild taste, you can steam the collard greens before preparing the wraps. (I’ll give the instructions for both methods in the recipe instructions.)

Ingredient options

These Rainbow Collard Wraps are made with a variety of different coloured vegetables, but you can use any kind of vegetables you like. Feel free to get creative here!

I use a mix of sprouts, cucumber, peppers, carrots, avocado, purple cabbage and beet hummus.

How to assemble a collard wrap

Before assembling, you’ll want to cut off the hard stalky stem of the collard leaf. Then rinse the leaf and place it on a cutting board. Start layering the ingredients, starting with the hummus in the centre of the leaf.

Then use your hands to roll the leaf, like you would a wrap or a burrito. Roll the top and bottom sides inwards, then begin to wrap.

Secure the ends of the collard wrap with some hummus or a toothpick.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Choose collard leaves that are big, and don’t have any large holes or damage to them.
  • Don’t forget to slice off the stem of the collard green. This part is tough and will make the wrap harder to roll.
  • Depending on the size of your leaf, you may be able to add more or less filling to the wrap. If your leaf is very large, you can add quite a bit.

Description

These Rainbow Collard Wraps are easy to make and are perfect for a healthy grain-free light lunch! Mix up your regular salads and enjoy one of these wraps instead!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large collard leaves
  • 4 tbsp beet hummus 
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 cup sliced cucumber 
  • 1/2 cup sliced red or yellow pepper 
  • 1/2 an avocado, sliced 
  • 1/2 cup sprouts 
  • (optional) green goddess dressing to dip

Instructions

  1. Prepare the leaves: Place the leaves with the veins facing up, then use a knife to shave off the thick stemy part of the leaf as much as possible. 
  2. Blanche the leaves (optional): You can use the leaves raw, or slightly cook them. If cooking them, fill a large skillet with water and bring to a boil. Place the leaves in the water and cook for 20-30 seconds. Then immediately transfer the leaves to a bowl of water with ice to stop the cooking. 
  3. Assemble the wraps: Layer all the ingredients in the center of the wrap. Tuck in the sides then rolls it up like a burrito. Cut in half. You can use a toothpick to secure the wraps. 
  4. Serve on their own or with your favourite dipping sauce. I like to serve these with Green Goddess Dressing. 

Notes

Choose collard leaves that are big, and don’t have any large holes or damage to them.

Don’t forget to slice off the stem of the collard green. This part is tough and will make the wrap harder to roll.

Depending on the size of your leaf, you may be able to add more or less filling to the wrap. If your leaf is very large, you can add quite a bit.
