Butternut and Black Lentil Collard Wraps with Cilantro Pistou


Black lentils

Collard wraps are my new obsession. I wish I made the discovery a few years ago. Perhaps then I’d be a bit better at rolling them by this point…Thank you aluminum foil for keeping me (somewhat) clean on a regular basis.

I’m psyched to present my newest version of these. Can we just start off by discussing how beautiful those above lentils are?! Their bluish shimmer is so striking. How could you not want to put them with some butternut and wrap them tightly in an equally gorgeous green shell? The beauty of clean eating, I tell you. It feels almost too easy.

Butternut and Black Lentil Collard Wraps with Cilantro Pistou

I provided my office with lunch for the very first time this past week. (We’re a small team.) And thus, I also gave my co-workers their very first taste of collard wraps.

We’re a health-based startup, so needless to say, I was immediately given employee of the month. Kidding. But these wraps did go over rather well, and I foresee more collard wraps in their future. Woohoo! I’m always on a never-ending healthy eating revolution, so I love when new ideas are a hit.

Light and portable (with the help of that handy dandy aluminum foil, as mentioned above), these make for a great workweek lunch, one that will leave you feeling alert and ready to go. The cilantro pistou adds a tangy, almost Baja-esque feel with the help of a little cabbage for some crunch.

Butternut paired with avocado is also a new obsession of mine, as I feel both compliment each other’s butteriness. Find them here together, and let me know if you feel the same. (Sometimes I’ll just steam up winter squash, and melt some smashed, salted avocado on top once it’s finished. It’s heavenly, and oh so simple.)

I wouldn’t share just any recipe for my first time making lunch for my office. So trust me, this one’s a healthful delight. Maybe you can impress some friends with it, too. And start a collard wrap revolution with me. Enjoy!
