I finally made collard wraps!!! I tried this back in March of this year, but accidentally used chard instead of collard greens and it was a disaster.
The collards were so much easier to handle. I cut them off the stem like this:
And put them in a pot of boiling water to soften them and make them more appetizing and digestible. They turned a bright green in less than a minute. I rinsed them with cold water to stop them cooking and to make them cool enough to handle:
Then, I laid out the fixins’ including hummus, red pepper strips, avocado and sliced onion:
I built the wrap like a burrito (note: stay away from the edges):
And folded it over:
I was soooo proud of myself. I served the wraps with some chopped up Asian pear. The collard green itself was pretty mild in flavor and had a nice texture. I don’t know how portable this type of wrap would be, I ended up eating it with a fork and knife. I will for sure be making these in the future as an alternative to a regular grain-based wrap.
P.S. I also have a Carrie on Living Amazon affiliate store where I list all of my favorite beauty items, kitchen devices, books, and other cool stuff.
