How do You Make a Collard Wrap?
- First, cut off the thick part of the collard leaf’s stem. Do this by angling the knife so it is nearly parallel to the stem, then carefully slicing your way from toward the bottom of the leaf.
Optional: for a softer wrap, microwave the stems for 10 seconds. They can all be stacked on top of each other in the microwave. OR you can steam them for 1 minute.
2. Arrange the veggies in on the leaf, keeping them towards the bottom and in the center.
3. Fold the sides of the collard leaf inwards on top of the veggies.
4. Roll from the bottom of the leaf up and over the veggies, like a burrito.
5. Continue to roll until the wrap is complete!
If you choose to keep the leaf raw, you may need a toothpick to keep the wrap from un-rolling.
The best thing about a rainbow collard wrap, is that you can choose any fruits/veggies you like to add in. In addition to the veggies in the recipe for these vegan Collard Wraps with sweet and spicy cauliflower, here are some more flavorful add-ins to mix it up:
- Tropical fruit, like mango, papaya, or pineapple
- Rice noodles
- Extra greens (you can never have too many greens!)
- Citrus, like tangerines or grapefruit
- Almond butter (it’s not weird, trust me)
