Collard Wraps with Falafel and Hummus

Collard Wraps with Falafel and Hummus

I take back what I said about the entrance of fall. I’m desperately clinging to summer via seasonal vegetables and bright colors. This gives me a lot of falafeelings and will make your taste buds sing / hum(mus). It’s packed with fiber, protein, antioxidants, and flavor. Check out how to get it done below!


  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and dried
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper (increases absorption of turmeric!)
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Pulse everything in food processor until dough forms. Form small patties (mine made about 10) and place in oven for 30-40 minutes, until firm to the touch on the outside.
