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 that supports my lifestyle. Your purchase of any item on Amazon helps support my blog so thank you in advance!
