Looking to switch up your regular meal prep routine? Then try this awesome recipe from my co-worker Kerstin Graham. You’ll save the carbs too by using collard green leaves as a warp instead of the usual tortilla.
The trickier part is making the collard greens into a wrap. Honest Fare breaks down in these pictures below.
1. Cut off the white portion of the stalk that had no leafy greens attached to it and soaked them in a bath of warm water and vinegar for about 10 minutes or so.
2. Using a sharp paring knife, shave the dense stalk down until it is more or less the same thickness as the leaf. (Note: it will be a bit thicker, but the goal is to get to where it’s flexible enough be rolled up with the rest of the leaf without snapping.)
3. Now you are ready to make Kerstin’s recipe! Check it out below.
1-2 Collard Green Leaves
6 tbsp oil-free Hummus
1/2 cup Shredded Carrots
1/2 Cup Shredded Raw Beets
Handful of red bell pepper slices
Now, you’re set to make this wrap look like it was something out of a fancy juice shop!
P.S. for all you vegans and vegetarians out there, this is the perfect recipe for you!
