Need to eat more dark leafy greens? Then these Hummus Collard Wraps are for you. A super easy and delicious way to eat your greens.
One veggie I’ve always wanted to try but didn’t really know what to do with are collard greens. Giant sturdy green leaves that I see at our local farmer’s market every weekend.
Prior to today’s recipe, I had only heard of them being cooked southern-style collard greens. And assuming they would be bitter and difficult to work with, I avoided them for years. Until now.
What I now know is that collard greens are pretty much AMAZING!
- sturdy and pliable enough to use as a wrap
- tasty with a nice distinct bite
- delicious eaten raw
- jam packed with nutrients and fiber
One thing to note, collard greens have a thick stem and center rib that needs to be trimmed so that it’s about the same thickness as the leaf. That way the leaf is pliable and not crunchy.
Once the stem is trimmed, it’s all about the hummus, crisp vegetables and juicy mango slices. I like my wraps vegetarian but this wrap works with meat and deli meat. Chicken and turkey are both delicious options.
These wraps are truly a great way to get your dark leafy greens on, in a way that is portable, fun and yummy!
