Collard Green Quinoa Wraps with Chili Seed Mix

collard green wraps

Collard Green Wraps are all the rage—and for good reason! These green leaves make a perfect substitute for a tortilla, which means these wraps are not only delicious, but they’re gluten-free too! Collards are absolutely jam packed with vitamins and minerals and are equally as delicious raw as well as cooked. When working with the larger collard leaves, making a light shallow cut in the central spine of the leaf makes it easier to wrap. For those on a raw diet, just leave the quinoa out and add your favorite sprouts.

Prepare all these ingredients before hand and have them in your fridge—these wraps make the perfect quick lunch!
