Collard Green Burritos

Serves: 5-6

Prep Time: 25 min

Cooking Time: 5 min


  • 5-6 Green collard greens leaves

  • 1 Cup pinto beans

  • 1-2 Cup Bqq quinoa meat ( Find my recipe here)

  • 1/2 avocado

  • 1/2 Cheese Sauce ( Find my recipe here)

  • 2 plum tomatoes , finely chopped

  • 1/2 white onion, finely chopped

  • 1 handful chopped parsley

  • Juice of 1 Lemon

  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In a bowl combine tomatoes, onion, parsley lemon and salt. Mix until well combined. ( This is your pico de gallo mix)

  2. Prepare your collar green wraps by trimming the spine of the collard greens. Place collard green leaves on a cutting board and cut off the large stems at the base of the leaf. Use a small knife to thinly shave the remaining stem at the base of the collard green can easily fold.

  3. Heat 1/2 cup of water in a large skillet and bring to boil. Lower temperature and place one collard green leaf at a time and steam for 30 sec to 1 min. Until collard wrap turns vibrant green and soft. Repeat with all remaining wraps.

  4. Place each wrap over a kitchen towel to remove the water excess. Transfer to a chopping board and place your fillings in 2/3 of the wrap. Add 1/4 cup taco quinoa meat, 1/4 cup pico de gallo mix, few slices of avocado, 2-3 spoonfuls of pinto beans and 1-2 spoonfuls of the cheese sauce.

  5. Roll one end of collard leaf over the fillings lengthwise and then fold the ends in, roll again until you get a tight burrito. Place wrap seam-side down on a serving plate. Repeat repeat with all the wraps.

  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
