Collard greens are a sturdy alternative to regular sandwich wraps. They provide a little extra green in your day. If you need to keep your meal gluten-free, getting your grains via quinoa instead of a specialized processed wrap can be easier.


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 (15 oz.) can corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp. salt-free southwest seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 avocado, sliced
