Collard Green Wraps
Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free.
Great for lunches & picnics!
Remove the spine of the collard green leaf from the end and then wash, while still wet, put on a plate and warm up in microwave for 30 -40 seconds (longer if you put your goodies on it and want them warm too). If you have smaller leafs, place end for end to help make more space for the goodies you want to put inside.
You can put lentils, beans, rice, quinoa, grated carrots, grated ginger, sprouts, slivered celery or cucumbers, ground nuts and seeds, chicken, hamburger, chicken burger, left over stew or chili… you get the idea – pack it with anything – including scrambled eggs, but of course then it wouldn’t be egg free.
Some of my favourite combos include:
Rowe’s ground chicken (dark meat) BBQ burger with an avocado slice, sprouts and honey mustard
Quinoa, ground almonds, chopped figs, dash of apple cider vinegar and olive oil, grated ginger
Grated carrots & ginger with chicken breast slices, arugula and a mix (put in small jar and shake) of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and dijon mustard
eggs whites and shredded unsweetened coconut
roast beef leftovers with honey mustard horseradish and baby greens/spring mix
