Hummus Salad Chard Wraps

Using vegetables instead of highly processed high-carb flour-based wraps and breads is a light, nutrient-dense alternative, that is also light on your weight, health and stomach. They can also be a great substitute for burger buns, burritos, tacos or anything else you can think of. You can use Swiss chard, rainbow chard, collard leaves, romaine or iceberg lettuce to enjoy as a wrap. You can use any salad ingredients, dips, protein of choice and get creative. These wraps can be eaten as a light meal or as a snack to enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 large Swiss chard leaves
  • 2 avocados
  • ½ green pepper (capsicum)
  • 1 carrot, grated or spiralized
  • 1 cucumber, grated or spiralized
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 4 tbsp of hummus

Directions

  1. Wash and pat dry the chard leaves.
  2. Remove the stem partway up the leaf to allow it to roll nicely.
  3. Lay the chard leaf down, with the inside of the leaf showing up, fill with hummus, slices of avocado, pepper, carrot, cucumber and tomato.
  4. Fold the sides in and roll into a roll (much like a spring roll or burrito) and repeat.
  5. Enjoy! These can be stored in the fridge for a few hours.
