These collard greens burritos or wraps are the perfect solution when you need to eat a quick lunch, or you want to take a break from using the stove.
Last week both the kids and Sergio were out of town. No kids meant no soccer games or errands to run, so I decided to take a vacation day for myself. I tuned everything out… errands, work, and I even took a break from the kitchen. I was able to read and do something else, but the day came and went incredibly fast. It’s always ok to take a day off from the kitchen, but that doesn’t mean it’s ok to slip and eat something unhealthy. These burritos with collard green leaves are made with leftovers. Do you remember the Mexican quinoa and the Jalapeño hummus?
Well, the wraps with collard greens are made with the leftover quinoa, hummus, cucumber, red cabbage, and carrots. To prepare these collard green burritos takes no time; they are super easy, healthy, and fast! The beauty of this recipe is to make use of your leftovers, and if you don’t have collard greens, you can use lettuce, chard or even a tortilla stuffed with some greens and then everything else on top.
