I went to the farmers market to find some fresh ingredients to include in my dishes for the week. While I was there I also remembered I still had quite a bit of cauliflower soup/stew leftovers. I found beautiful Rainbow Chard bundles and decided it might be fun to make some wraps. I recommend looking for a bundle where the leaves are wide and still intact (less tears or holes). My family and I go through quite a bit of beets a week by using them in juices or salads so I grabbed a bundle of those as well. It is also nice to look at what fresh herbs are offered at the farmers market; adding fresh herbs to dishes can make all the difference. This way you don’d have to use much of anything else to season your meals. I garnished these wraps with chives and fresh basil.
The green beans were actually from my neighbors flourishing garden!
When folding your wrap I found that if your break the spine of the chard first, and get it a but more moldable it holds together pretty well. In the photo above the rice and fillings are towards the middle and rolled it like a taco! fold over or cup one end with your hand and enjoy!
I thought he looked looked a little naked and decided to give him a smile….he was almost too good to eat!
Ingredients I used:
- Rainbow chard
- Cooked leftover wild rice and barley mix
- Leftover Cauliflower Leek soup
- Thinly Sliced Beets
- Green Beens
- Garnish with sliced chives and crushed almonds
- Lay out the rainbow chard, massage or break the spine by grabbing both sides of the chard and creating a wave like motion.
- Towards the middle of the chard, assemble the rest of the ingredients.
- Pour over some of the leftover soup or other sauce of your choice
- Garnish with fresh herbs, and crushes almonds or other nuts.
- Roll like you would a taco and fold one side down, cup with your hands and enjoy!
**You can also wrap them in plastic wrap or foil and save them for later or pre-pack a lunch!
