Our Smarty Cooking School today is hosted by our super Smarty and HEALTHY friends at The Whole Tulip, Adri & Carolyn!
Quinoa Collard Wrap
8 large collard leaves
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup grated raw beets
1 avocado, pitted, sliced
1 cup alfalfa sprouts
Carrot Miso Spread
2 cups shredded carrots
2 tbs freshly grated ginger
1 small shallot
1 tbs miso (Refrigerator section)
1 tsp honey
3 tbs Mirin rice cooking wine (found in the Asian section of the store)
3 tbs sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a VitaMix, high power blender or food processor, add the carrots, ginger, shallot, miso, honey, Mirin, sesame oil and salt and blend until combined. It will be fairly chunky.
Rinse the collard greens and dry them with a kitchen towel. Cut the stalk from the end of the leaves and discard. Using a paring knife, shave down the center of the stalk making it the same thickness as the rest of the leaf.
Lay the collard on top of each other with the two ends towards the middle. Overlapping the leaves about ¾ of the way. Spread the miso dressing first, then add about ¼ cup of quinoa, next add the shredded beets, then 2 avocado slices and finally the sprouts.
Fold both ends in and roll very tight like a burrito making sure to tuck both sides in securely. Cut in half and serve. Y-U-M!
