A few days ago, I was browsing the Tone It Up blog, when I came across when I came across a delicious sounding collard wrap, involving grapefruit and tempeh. I knew I had to make my own version of the wrap, but figured I’d improvise to make it fit my own eating style a bit more.
I eliminated the tempeh in favor of an awesome mash-up of edamame and avocado. I topped it with fresh grapefruit and hemp seeds, all rolled up in a collard leaf. They make for a great, well-balanced lunch!
Grapefruit Collard Wraps
- 3 large collard leaves
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 cup shelled edamame
- 1/2 large grapefruit
- 1 T hemp seeds
- sea salt and pepper to taste
1. Place the avocado and edamame in the food processor. Process until it forms a paste.
2. Place a large scoop of this paste on each of the collard leaves. Top with sea salt and pepper.
3. Peel the skin and pith off of the grapefruit. (This makes it much sweeter.) Break the grapefruit into small pieces, and place on the collard leaves. Top with about a teaspoon of hemp seeds on each wrap.
4. Fold in the edges of the leaf, then fold the bottom portion over the filling, and continue to roll. It’s exactly like rolling a burrito, which I demonstrated here. I used a bamboo skewer to keep my wraps in tact before eating. Gravity does a decent job, as well.
The main flavor in these is the sweetness of the grapefruit. They also have staying power thanks to the healthy fats, complete protein, and fiber. I devoured these in no time flat. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
