I’m a wrap star! Yes, I’m Becca Rhymes, in the same crew as Farro Williams, The Roots, and Kale-ye West. Gimme a beet! It’s so simple to be a wrap star: Just take a nori sheet, brown rice wrap, collard leaf, or large piece of romaine lettuce; add everything you want inside; roll it up; and (hip hop) hooray, it’s ready! Collard back, yo!

'The Notorious G.R.E.E.N.' Collard Wrap [Vegan]

Serves

1 wrap

Ingredients

  • 1 large collard leaf
  • ¼ avocado
  • Juice of 1 small lime
  • A pinch of cumin
  • A pinch of coriander
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina powder
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin seed oil or olive oil (or healthy, plant-based oil of choice)

Preparation

  1. De-stem the collard by cutting out the thick white stem in the center very carefully with a paring knife. Scoop out the avocado flesh into a small bowl, then add most of the lime juice and the cumin, coriander, cayenne, and spirulina and mash together with a fork. Place the collard on a cutting board or plate and add the fillings vertically along one long side of the leaf, leaving a margin on each side, starting with the avocado mixture, then the carrots, hemp seeds, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with the oil and the remaining lime juice.
  2. Fold the longer sides of the collard over the filling to cover. Then, from one shorter end, start rolling the leaf up until everything is covered, like a burrito. You can eat it as it is or slice it in half.

Notes

Plan to make 1 to 2 wraps per person for an appetizer portion and 3 to 4 each for a light main with a side salad.
