PERFECT COLLARD GREEN WRAPS BY THE DEFINED DISH


INGREDIENTS:
 

  • Collard Greens

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cut large end off the stem and then shave the top of the remaining stem. 
  2. Place Collard greens one at a time into boiling water for 30 seconds.
  3. Plunge the hot collard into a bowl of ice water or place under running cool sink water to stop the cooking process. Then, set on top of paper towels to soak up the water. 
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 so that you have 2 “blanched” collard greens, this will make 1 wrap. Lay the two collard greens so that they overlap by about 1 inch. 
  5. In the center of the collard greens, fill with desired filling(s). 
  6. Fold in sides and roll gently, yet tightly, like a burrito. If you want it more flat and wide  (instead of burrito style) fill more in the center and wider, but not as much lengthwise.) They stay together best burrito style!
  7. Cut in half and secure with toothpicks if not eating immediately. 
  8. Now kick back and enjoy!
