Collard Green-Quinoa Wraps

Hummus binds the veggie-packed filling together in this light, fresh meal.

I saw this recipe in Cooking Light and immediately marked it to try out during the week. I love how light and fresh it the ingredients are, and I hadn’t done a collard wrap at home before.

Well, they did taste great, but no amount of softening would help me roll these easily. I don’t know what the problem was – I can wrap up egg rolls, spring rolls, burritos… but this one was really tough for me.

Luckily, the filling was totally delicious, so I just shredded some of the greens on a platter and topped them with the filling and ate it like that.

It was really tasty – I love this combo of veggies. And the hummus binds it together really nicely. It’s definitely a fun method that I’ll use in the future.

I gave my husband the few that I did manage to wrap, since I left the feta out of that portion, and he really enjoyed them.
