Tomato Hummus

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • ⅓ cup dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon smoked hot paprika
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Wraps

Ingredients

  • 8 large collard green leaves
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, cut into matchsticks
  • ½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

Preparation

1. To make the tomato hummus: in a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tomatoes, tahini, oil, garlic, paprika, lemon peel, lemon juice, and salt. Process just until chunky.

2. To make the wraps: cut the firm white stalks off the collards. With a sharp knife, slice off the thickest parts of the remaining stalks that run down the backside of the leaves. Put 2 collards on a work surface, head to foot (stalk ends at opposite ends) with the paler side facing up. The leaves should overlap slightly.

3. Spread ⅓ cup of the hummus lengthwise down the center. Top with ¼ of the peppers, zucchini, and parsley. Tightly roll the leaves beginning from the bottom and tucking in the sides as you go. Cut in half on a bias. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
