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.)
