For a hit of fresh, pleasantly bitter, and peppery flavor, go beyond kale and spinach and try something new, like chard. Chard stems are wonderfully crisp and salty--don't toss them. Here, we chop and stir a few handfuls into the bulgur for extra crunch.

  • Remove stems of each chard leaf. Finely chop stems to measure 1/2 cup; add to bulgur mixture. Discard remaining stems. Place chard leaves in a large bowl; cover with warm water. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain; pat dry with paper towels.

  • Place leaves on a cutting board. Arrange 1/2 cup bulgur mixture down center of each leaf; top evenly with bell pepper, cucumber, carrot, and sprouts. Fold in edges of leaf; roll up, jelly-roll fashion. Spread remaining 2 tablespoons hummus evenly between leaves to seal. Secure with wooden picks.
