Collard Wraps with Veggies & White Bean Spread

AuthorChester County Food Bank

Collard leaves are bigger and stronger than most lettuce leaves so you can make burrito-like wraps. The creamy Great Northern Bean spread is similar to hummus so it's the perfect complement to the veggies.

WRAPS
 1 bunch collard greens, washed and destemmed. Keep leaves whole
VEGETABLE FILLING
 1 large bell pepper, julienned
 3 carrots, julienned or shredded
 2 scallions, thinly sliced
BEAN SPREAD
 2 cups Great Northen beans, prepared (1 cup dried). Reserve liquid
 1-2 cloves garlic
 ½ cup or to taste parsley or herb of choice
 2 tbsp olive oil
 lemon juice / apple cider vinegar to taste
 salt & pepper to taste
WHITE BEAN SPREAD DIRECTIONS
1

In blender, food processor or smash with a fork, combine all ingredients for the spread except for olive oil/liquid.

2

Blend on low speed and slowly increase speed while adding in olive oil (or reserved liquid). Blend or smash until a smooth and creamy consistency is formed.

3

Add salt, pepper, lemon juice/vinegar to taste.

COLLARD WRAP DIRECTIONS
4

Prepare the bell peppers, carrots, and scallions.

5

Lay destemmed collard leaf flat on dish or cutting board.

6

Spread about 1/4 cup of the bean spread in the center of collard leaf.

Cut in half and enjoy!
