YieldMAKES 4 WRAPS
2 large collard leaves
2 cups spinach, washed well
Â½ recipe Red Pepper Hummus (page 184 Ani's Raw Food Essentials) recipe follows
1 ripe avocado, pitted and sliced
Â½ cup zucchini, cut into long, thin spears
Â¼ cup pitted, chopped black olives
Cut the leaves away from the thick center stem of each collard leaf to make a total
of four flat pieces.

RED PEPPER HUMMUS (BEAN-FREE)
MAKES 2 CUPS
This hummus is made using tahini, as in traditional recipes, but instead of chickpeas, I use red bell pepper and a pinch of cumin for a richer flavor. Sesame powder helps absorb some of the excess liquid from the juicy bell pepper.
Â½ cup sesame seeds, ground into a powder
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups seeded and diced red bell pepper
1/3 cup tahini
Â¼ cup lemon juice
Â½ teaspoon ground cumin
In a food processor, process the sesame seeds, garlic, and salt into small pieces.
Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
Will keep for 2 days in the fridge.
