Green Machine Wraps

SO my Sweetheart is a Newfoundlander
For some reason it is common practice to nickname any ANY item ...
A machine
Maybe this is just a Young thing ...and not a Newfie thing at all
A Pen ...A hat...A piece of food
These items are all included as machines
This is very convenient when carrying on conversation you can simply state :
"look at this machine" pointing to the item of your choice....
I am not completely certain of all the rules for this phenomenon...
But I THINK these green wraps COULD be included as I have named them just that

These are SO GrEEn and so yummy!
As with Every Wrap style sandwhich the possibilities are endless to what you can fill it up with
Choosing a nice spread will help make the wrap feel moist as well as act like a 'glue' to hold your wrappy together.
I whipped up a batch of BEAN free Humous for these
(ahhhemm low carb yeah)
This is an amazing spread that you will want to put on everything!!!!

What you will Need for THESe wraps:
  • Rainbow Chard or  Collard Greens
  • Bean Free Humous
  • Carrot grated  
  • Beet roasted and grated
  • Firm Tofu marinated with balsalmic vinegar & Garlic then roasted in oven 
  • Avocado
  • Spinach leaves or Sprouts 
  • Onion
To start make Raw-Bean Free Humous:
  • 1 Cup Diced Zucchini (peeled if you like)
  • 1/3 Cup Raw Tahini
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin 
Just Put the works into your blender.  Blend till smooth add a little extra water or lemon juice if needed.

NExt Prep your Veggies for your Wraps:
To Prep you Collard Green or Swiss Chard or other large Green Leafy material 
Put them into a large Bowl of warm water with a bit of Vinegar for about 10 minutes.
This ensures that they are nice and clean and at room temperature which will aid in easier folding later ;) 

See that large Stalk running through the length of your leaf.  This has gotta go!
It just won't fold and it will end up tearing and breaking your pretty wrap.
I used my Filet knife to slice the stalk off and the thickest part.  Careful not to cut your leaf!

AND Now for the super exciting awesome fun part 
Make your wrap ooooooh!
Lay two large leaves down arranging head to foot, stalks at opposite ends (see picture)
Spread with your dream Humous. 
Pile on your other goodies
Warning! if you load your wrap up with too much stuff it might end up being Humungo
 ......ahhemm like mine
I'm thinking a smaller version might be less messy while eating
When all your goodies are in tuck in both sides and wrap up from one end as you would wrap a Burrito
Healthy lunch/Dinner/ Snack???
Good to go
