Ingredients

  • ½ cup cooked chickpeas (using canned is easiest)
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup red cabbage (chopped)
  • ¼ cup carrots (shredded or thinly sliced with a peeler)
  • ¼ cup green onion (chopped)
  • ¼ cup green pepper (chopped)
  • ¼ - ½ cup dressing of choice (cashew caesar or maple dijon)
  • Any seasonings of choice

Instructions

  • Start by mashing the chickpeas in a mixing bowl. Having them mashed will prevent them from falling out of your wraps.
  • Next, add all remaining ingredients, including the dressing. Mix everything together thoroughly.
  • To prepare your collard leaf, make sure it is washed, then slice off as much of the stem as you can.

Notes

This recipe makes enough filling for about 3-4 wraps, depending on the size of your collard greens.
When making collard green wraps, you can really make them your own. Add any other vegetables you want!
You can use one of the dressings linked above, or any dressing of choice.
For extra flavour, I like to add 1 teaspoon of dill and a bit of hot sauce. They go very well with both the cashew caesar and maple dijon dressing.
