Whenever I feel like going easy on the carbs, bread is always the first thing to go. So with that in mind, how can you still have a hand held lunch without it? Nature's own green 'tortilla' to the rescue... Once you remove the stem from the middle, the leaves of the Collard Green can be wrapped to hold any filling you can imagine. It's healthy and delicious and a great alternative to bread! —TiggyBee

In This Recipe
Select a large collard green leaf, wash and dry it.
Lay the leaf flat on a cutting surface and using a knife, cut the stem out of the middle. This will divide the leaf, so when assembling, simply lay one half over into an inch or so, of the other.
Spread the hummus over the entire leaf. Add the remaining ingredients on one side of the leaf only, so that you're able to roll it up. Add a dash or two of vinaigrette, salt and pepper to taste.
