Here’s an easy way to wrap up lunch. Use collard green leaves to enclose a savory filling made with chickpeas and walnuts.

Print Add Add To My Grocery List


1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas or 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added or low sodium chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon Braggs Liquid Aminos or low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dr. Fuhrman's MatoZest or other no-salt seasoning blend adjusted to taste
6 collard green leaves (see note)
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup shredded red or green cabbage
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 avocado, peeled and diced


In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas, walnuts, Braggs, lemon juice and no-salt seasoning until crumbled and similar in consistency to ground meat.

Use a paring knife to shave down the thick stalk of the collard leaves to make them easier to roll. Place an equal amount of the chickpea and walnut mixture on each leaf and top with the carrots, cabbage, onion and avocado. Fold up like a burrito.

If desired, serve with a no-salt, no-oil salad dressing.

Note: 100% whole grain tortillas can be substituted for the collard leaves

Delicious.  I didn't have cabbage on hand, so I shredded cos lettuce instead.  I used walnut vinaigrette dressing in lieu of walnuts:

The little bowl of dressing in the photo looks intriguing. Anyone know what it is? Perhaps the walnut vinaigrette refered to above?
