Chipotle Hummus Collard Wraps

wrap ingredients

We are always on the lookout for healthy, easy lunch options that require minimum preparation. These collard wraps definitely fit the bill. They are packed with cholesterol-lowering ingredients, healthy protein, and essential amino acids. They are also excellent for digestion! We recommend making a batch of chipotle hummus and a pot of quinoa on Sunday. You then have the staple ingredients to make collard wrap lunches all week!

  1. This looks amazing! I’ve always wanted to try making hummus at home, but it looks so difficult. I’ll definitely have to try this recipe. Also, I love how you added quinoa to the wraps – such a well balanced meal!
