Spicy CousCous Kale Wrap

This lunch came about as a way to clean out my fridge before heading out of town this week..  I had a bunch of CousCous and Kale left that I wanted to not go to waste.   This wrap was a tasty little surprise.  It is chocked full of flavor and actually really healthy.

I used Spinach and Tomato CousCous and Spicy Chipotle Hummus but you could really use any hummus or couscous you had on hand.  I must admit this Spicy Chipotle Hummus is amazing.  It has a bite so beware but if you love spicy food it is so good.

These are all the ingredients I used.  I think it would be stellar with any veggies though.

SPICY COUSCOUS KALE WRAP

-CousCous (I used Tomato Spinach flavor)

-Spicy Chipotle Hummus

-Sauteed Kale

-Diced Tomato

-Diced Yellow Bell Pepper

-Sun-dried Tomato Wrap

Chop the Kale, removing all stems.  Sautee in about a tablespoon of olive.  Add in salt and pepper.  After this has cooked a few minutes add in about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and continue sauteeing a few more minutes. While Kale cooks spread hummus on wrap.  Layer on Couscous, tomatoes, bell pepper and kale.  Roll up and enjoy.

    Yummy! I am always trying to think of new ways to eat leftover grains and this is a great idea! I love to use it in lettuce wraps, too.
