Health Highlights
Want to try something new? This zucchini hummus is the perfect thing!

Ingredients


2 medium Zucchini (peeled and chopped)
1/2 cup Tahini
1/3 cup Lemon juice
1/3 cup Extra virgin olive oil
3 clove(s) Garlic
1 1/2 tsp Cumin
1 pinch Salt
1 dash Black pepper
12 leaf Collard greens (washed and dried)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (sliced (optional))
2 cup grated Carrots (optional)
1 cup Alfalfa sprouts (optional)

Instructions


  1. Chop your zucchini and then add it to a large food processor along with your tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. 
  2. Puree using the food processor for about 30 seconds - 1 minute, until you get a smooth consistency. Season to taste by adding more salt or lemon juice, if needed. 
  3. Prep your collard wraps by placing them flat (rough side up) on a cutting board and gently glide a sharp paring knife across the length of the stem, shaving it down to the same thickness as the rest of the leaf. Each wrap will require two leaves for rolling.
  4. Place two leaves head to foot, overlapping halfway. Apply a good amount of hummus at the center where the two leaves overlap. Add desired toppings (see notes). Fold in sides and tightly roll like you would a burrito. Cut through the center just before eating. 

Notes:

Topping ideas

  • A handful of grated carrots, tomatoes, sliced peppers, sprouts, diced green onions, diced avocado. 
  • Dairy-free cheese or goat cheese
  • Protein source: Turkey or chicken slices, mashed chickpeas, tempeh, tofu, or salmon.
     

Nutritional Highlights:
