This. Sandwich. If you’re thinking about sandwiches right now and bread is the first obvious thing that comes to your mind, stop for just one second and consider the fact that some sandwiches are actually better without bread. Impossible, you say?
Not at all. Try this one, and your bread-sandwich mind connection may be compromised just a little. The slightly crunchy, flavorful collard green wrap is like a hug around the peanut sauce hummus-covered veggies and salty-sweet tofu in the middle. Think of it like a messy Thai burrito packed with veggies. If you’re not actually commenting out loud about how good this wrap is when you’re eating it (yes, even if you’re alone), I just don’t get you.
Collard greens, bottom stem removed
Carrots, cut into matchsticks
Cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
Radishes, cut into matchsticks
Jalapenos, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Boil a large pot of water. Carefully drop in the collard green leaves into the hot water and blanch for 1 minute until the leaves are pliable. Drain immediately and dry the leaves. They are ready to be wrapped!
Spread out the collard green leaves on a flat surface. Spread the hummus all over the middle of the leaf. Top with veggies, tofu, and a little salt. Fold the ends in and roll from front to back (like they do at burrito joints).
