Collard Wrap Up
More GREENS! I’ve written about my love for collards before, but I wanted to reiterate it 🙂 You can replace your corn/flour tortilla with a much healthier option! Collards are very mild tasting and have HUGE leaves…perfect to wrap anything and everything in. This time around, we added hummus, avocado, tomato, and sprouts. Then, we wrapped it up and stuck a toothpick in it:
Your options are endless…these look beautiful with long julienned strips of carrots, cucumber, peppers, etc. in it. Just stuff it full of whatever veggies you have on hand, top with hummus or another dip and voila! These are also great with raw mock tuna or raw zucchini hummus. The great thing is…Bella liked it! It really is mild enough that she didn’t mind the raw greens in whole form. The only thing I will say is that because the leaves are so big, they do take up a lot of space in the fridge. You might consider cutting off the stems before you store them. They keep for a long time too…I’ve had ours for 2 weeks now and they are still good. Collard greens are widely available…so run out and get yours today!
TIP: When you lay it out and before you fill it…use your thumb to press down hard on the center “vein” to break it/crush it from end to end. If you don’t you’ll have a really hard time rolling it. Crushing the vein will soften it enough to roll.
