Instructions
  1. With a sharp knife, gently remove the lower, thick part of the collard green stem. Simply run your knife along the spine of the stem, slicing it flat until it’s level with the collard leaf. Discard stem.
  2. Spread hummus along the center of the collard leaf. Top with sprouts, carrot, bell pepper, cucumber, and onions. Fold two ends of the collard leaf toward the center of the leaf, then roll the leaf burrito-style so the two folded ends create a fully enclosed wrap. Wrap in plastic wrap and save for later, or slice in half and serve immediately. Enjoy!
