All of the credit for this idea goes to Gena from Choosing Raw, and her amazing Collard Wrap Tutorial. I had some Swiss chard on hand and a craving for hummus, so I decided to give this a try. I started by whipping up a quick batch of hummus, and then spreading it on a Swiss chard leaf as shown, with shredded carrot and chopped cucumber. And then I followed the tutorial and rolled it up.

As you can see, I didn’t succeed in making a neat tightly packed wrap, but I did create a few rolls which made a decent dinner. Practice makes perfect, and this seems like a technique worth perfecting. How convenient to fit vegetables, protein, and healthy fat in a roll you can eat with your hands!

  1. These look excellent. Do you think they would be just as good the next day?

  2. I do think these would keep, since chard and collards are 'tougher' greens than spinach for example. But I have not yet tested it out…
