I have a bit of an obsession with Chef Vivian Howard from A Chefs Life. Its, hands down, my favorite show on television right now. Every single episode makes me want to march into my kitchen and make something from the show.
A few episodes back she made collard green wraps and they havent left my mind. I figured right now was as a good of a time as ever to make them, seeing as most of us are trying to eat a bit lighter. The holidays were a bit rough on my body so Im searching for healthy foods that are different and fun to eat.
These collard green wraps are a riff on her version. I believe her version had more Asian flavors. These dont at all. They incorporate smooth hummus spiked with a healthy dose of ground sumac and julienned carrots, a bit of mint and Italian parsley and a few slivers of ripe avocado. Oh and sprouts! Have I told you how much I love sprouts? The texture they provide is so necessary.
These collard green wraps are pretty flexible. Get creative and add what you like, or follow the ingredients below! Youll be met with one of my favorite, new-to-me healthy meals. And if you havent, check out A Chefs Life. I guarantee youll be inspired to make something new.
