Collard Green Burrito

Serve this veggie-fied burrito in place of the traditional Mexican crowd-pleaser. Its satisfying crunch and flavorful filling will have you shouting “Olé”!

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 8 large collard green leaves
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 cup salsa
  • Seasoned Black Beans:
    • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 yellow onion, diced
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1 green bell pepper, diced
    • 1 can (15.5) black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 4 Tablespoons water
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Wash collard green leaves well, trim off thick stem (will look like tortilla) and with a fork mash the center vein to make it more pliable.
  2. In pot, sauté oil, onion, garlic, cumin and bell pepper for 6-8 minutes, until almost tender.
  3. Add beans & water. With a potato masher, mash half the beans and heat thoroughly.
  4. Stir in cilantro.
  5. Construct burrito. Wrap (like a burrito): 1/4 cup cooked rice, 1/8 avocado, 2 Tablespoons salsa and 1/4 cup seasoned beans in each collard green leaf.

NOTE: Round out the meal with a piece of fruit.
