Collard wraps are a lunchtime staple for me. Quinoa and beans are a great base, but adding the right veggies and spices takes it from bland to incredible. This superfood packed recipe has a serious boost of flavor and rings in at only 284 calories.
Yields: 1 Entree Size Serving
2 Whole Collard Green Leaves (with stem)
1/2 C Quinoa, cooked
1/2 C Black Beans, cooked (I used dried to avoid sodium)
1/4 Green Bell Pepper, Steamed
1 oz Artichoke Hearts, Steamed
1 T Fresh Guacamole
2 T Daiya Pepperjack (a dairy, casein, soy & gluten-free cheese)
- Cut each collard green leaf off of the stem, into two pieces (four pieces total)
- Fill with all ingredients (or ingredients of your choice)
- Microwave for 45 seconds to steam collard green and melt cheese.
- Roll up into a wrap and enjoy!
This recipe is incredibly filling and packed with superfoods and protein. It’s vegan, gluten-free and soy-free. It makes for a great post-workout lunch!
