Collard Green Turkey Wrap

Why I love this recipe:

Collard greens: Collard greens are a nutrient-dense leafy green vegetable that is packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as fiber and antioxidants. They provide a low-calorie, low-carb alternative to traditional wraps or tortillas.

Turkey breast: Turkey breast is a lean source of protein and contains essential amino acids. It is lower in fat compared to other meats and provides important nutrients like iron, zinc, and B vitamins.

Avocado: Avocado is a heart-healthy fruit that provides healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. It adds creaminess and a dose of good fats to the wrap.

Vegetables: The combination of carrots, red bell pepper, and red onion adds a variety of textures, flavors, and nutrients to the wrap. These vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support overall health.

Hummus: Hummus is a nutritious spread made from chickpeas, which are a good source of plant-based protein, fiber, and healthy fats. It adds a creamy and flavorful element to the wrap.

Ingredients

Scale

4 large collard green leaves

8 slices of turkey breast

1 avocado, sliced

1 large carrot, julienned

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons hummus

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Prepare the collard greens by removing the stems and blanching the leaves in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Transfer them to a bowl of ice water to cool down and then pat them dry with a paper towel.

Lay one collard green leaf flat on a clean surface. Spread a thin layer of hummus and Dijon mustard evenly over the leaf.

Layer two slices of turkey breast on top of the spread, followed by a few slices of avocado, julienned carrots, red bell pepper, and red onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Carefully roll the collard green leaf, tucking in the sides as you go, to create a tight wrap. Repeat this process with the remaining ingredients to make three more wraps.

Slice the wraps in half and serve immediately. If desired, you can secure each wrap with toothpicks to keep them in place.
