Collard Wraps

These will make your belly very happy.


Collard Wraps

  • 4 collard leaves, stem removed
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 T gomasio (sesame seeds and sea salt)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
While you wait, put the can of black beans (drained) and the garlic in a pot to heat.
Once the water is to a boil, place the collard leaves in. Keep an eye on them and take them out carefully once they’re tender, about 3 minutes or so.
Place the leaves on paper towels.
Heat a small skillet and toast the pumpkin seeds. Should take 5 minutes. You’ll see them turn brown and begin to pop.
In a bowl, mix the beans, rice, bell pepper, and pumpkin seeds.
On a single leaf, place about 2 T of the mixture in the center and pour gomasio over it.
Fold in the sides of the leaf and wrap like a burrito.

This is a great side with fish.
