Some of these chickpea & Veggie Collard Wraps by @thevegansara will give your weekend a kick with a spicy tahini sauce! Chickpeas are high in protein which makes them an excellent addition to any plant based diet.⠀
For the Wraps:⠀
1 can 15 oz chickpeas rinsed & dried ,⠀
2 tbl sweet chili sauce,⠀
1 tbl tamari,⠀
1 bunch of collard greens,⠀
2 cups cooked grain of choice ( I used Israeli couscous/with turmeric for color),⠀
3 carrots cut into matchsticks,⠀
3 mini cucumbers cut into matchsticks,⠀
1 cup purple cabbage shredded⠀
For the sauce:⠀
1/4 cup tahini,⠀
2 tbl tamari, juice of 1/2 lime,⠀
2 tbl maple syrup,⠀
2 tbl of chili garlic sauce⠀
1️⃣ For chickpeas: mix sweet chili sauce & tamari then add to chickpeas & place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes shaking tray 1/2 way⠀
2️⃣ For collard greens: on stovetop bring a pot of salted boiling water to a boil. Working in batches of 3 leaves at a time, boil for 1 min, use tongs to retrieve & place in a large mixing bowl with ice & cold water⠀
3️⃣ After all greens have been blanched, cut off stem off of each at the base of the leaf. Set aside⠀
4️⃣ To make spicy tahini sauce whisk all ingredients together. Add warm water if too thick⠀
5️⃣To assemble wraps: Take 1 collard green, smooth side facing up with cut stem closest to you, leaving a bit of space add your ingredients, roll, fold in left and right edges over sides of filling then roll. Use a bit of sauce to seal. Place seam side down⠀
