Deliciously Healthy Black Bean Quinoa Collard Wraps


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!
