Ham and Swiss Omelet
1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, place ham on one side and sprinkle with cheese; fold other side over filling. Slide omelet onto a plate.
Rainbow Collard Wraps w/ Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce
4 large collard green leaves
½ cup hummus
4 carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
1 English cucumber, cut into matchsticks
2 avocados, thickly sliced
½ red cabbage, shredded
½ cup basil leaves
½ cup mint leaves
½ cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari

1. MAKE THE WRAPS: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and blanch the collard leaves in it for about 30 seconds. Pat dry with paper towels.
2. Working with one collard leaf at a time, trim away the thick, tough part of the stem.
3. Spread 2 tablespoons of the hummus down the center of one leaf. Top with a quarter of the carrots, cucumbers, avocado slices and cabbage, and 2 tablespoons each of basil and mint.
4. Fold the leaf in toward the filling (like you’re rolling a burrito or wrap) and then tightly roll the filling inside the leaf.
5. Repeat with the remaining leaves and filling. Cut each wrap in half.
6. MAKE THE DIPPING SAUCE: In a medium bowl, stir together the peanut butter, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar and garlic powder.
7. Serve the wraps immediately with the dipping sauce or cover them tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to two days.
