Vegan and guilt-free collard wraps

tray of colorful veggies sliced into matchstick shapes
Huge collard leaves inspires this fast food. With the center vein removed, half a leaf makes the perfect size wrap.
  • Large collard leaves, split with center vein removed
  • Red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • Cucumber, sliced thin
  • Jalapeño, sliced thin
  • Carrot, sliced thin
  • Cabbage, sliced thin
  • Cilantro leaves
  • Tomato, quartered and sliced thin
  • Hummus
  • Mustard, balsalmic reduction, or dressing of choice
  • Wash collard leaves, remove the center veins and finish splitting them in halves. Place the them in a serving bowl or on a plate.
  • Slice an assortment of veggies thinly, like matchsticks and arrange on a platter or tray.
  • Set your collards and veggie tray on the table with a bowl of hummus, your choice of veggies, mustard, balsamic or other dressings, and a pepper mill.
  • To assemble wraps, each person smears some hummus on a leaf, then adorns it with herbs and veggies, a drizzle of dressing and a sprinkle of pepper before rolling it up.
  • Many substitutions can be made, such as using a nut paste or other bean-based paste, other fresh herbs and veggies. Try adding sprouts instead of cabbage if you want less crunch. Create a rainbow you can hold in your hand!

Koops Arizona Heat is our favorite mustard! We bought a 12-pack on Amazon for about $30. Otherwise, the only place we’ve seen it is at an Arizona Walmart.
