Collard “Sushi” Wrap

Collard greens make a nutritious substitute for seaweed in this summer sushi roll-inspired snack!


Serves 4


4 large collard leaves, rib removed and cut in half along the rib

1 cup hummus of your choice

2 cups instant brown rice, microwaved

1 avocado, cut into slices

1 large red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

1 large carrot, cut into thin strips



Lay out the collard halves so the darker green is facing down and spread with hummus.

Layer brown rice (1/4-1/3 cup), avocado, red pepper, and carrot on 1/3 of each leaf.

Roll tightly and eat as a wrap or cut into smaller pieces. Plate and enjoy!
