Recipe Ingredients for Ann Esselstyn's Lovely Collard Wraps

100 g Collards
4 serving super hummus
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4 red bell pepper
1/4 cucumber
58 g carrots
1 fruit+2-1/8"+dia lemon

Recipe Directions for Ann Esselstyn's Lovely Collard Wraps

  1. Put about 2 inches of water in a large frying pan and bring to a boil.

  2. Choose 4 of the nicest collard greens. Lay them flat, cut off the thick stem at the point where the leaf begins then pile them on top of each other in the boiling water. Cover and cook for about 30 seconds to a minute. Collards are pretty tough and don?t easily break apart when cooked. Their flexibility makes them a perfect wrap.

  3. Drain then lay flat on a board or counter with the thick part of the stem facing up.

  4. Down the center spine of the 4 collard leaves place a row of about 2 tablespoons hummus, sprinkle with green onions, cilantro and shredded carrots. Place thin red pepper strips and cucumber strips on top.

  5. Start with the side nearest you and flip it over. Then turn up the end piece on the non thick stem side and gently roll into a sausage shape.

  6. With a sharp knife, cut into as many small pieces as possible. You should be able to get six or more pieces, but it will depend on your collard size. The creator always gets to eat the end pieces!
