{CSA recipe} quinoa-stuffed collard wraps

happy wednesday! 
about an awesome hump-day recipe?!
we have a TON of collard greens from our CSA box & i just wasnt sure what to do with all of them.
so, when in doubt ; throw some quinoa in a pot & use a wrap ;)

quinoa- stuff collard greens
inspired by this recipe // makes 8 wraps 

what you need : 
*4 collard greens leaves
*1 cup quinoa {precooked}
*2/3 cup hummus {any flavor}
*1/4 cup onion ; finely chopped
*1/2 cucumber ; chopped into chunks
*garlic salt ; to taste

how to do it : 
1) 10 min before you are ready ; soak your collards in a bowl of water with a dash of vinegar. soaking will help them become more 'roll-able' and less likely to rip
2) while your collards are soaking, prepare your quinoa according to the package
3) collards soaked? dry them off & cut off the stem
4) lay your collards flat & spread with a layer of hummus. add your quinoa, veggies & seasonings.
5) time to roll! pull in the sides & wrap top to bottom. cut in half

these turned out really good! they are hearty, full of vitamins & delish! 
do you use collard greens? id love to hear your recipe suggestions!
