I have been on a collard wrap thing the past few weeks and have been experimenting with different fillings. The next one on my list was a taco wrap but something drew me into making this vegan reuben wrap. Maybe it was the fact that I had just made a huge batch of smoked bean and buckwheat strips (aka vegan “bacon”). Whatever you want to call these smokey goodies, the vegan reuben wrap was created and tasted awesome.
If you are looking for a bread free alternative for lunch, look no further. Collard wraps are the way to go. Not only are they a low carb alternative to tortillas, bread, etc, collard greens are ultra nutritious. They provide loads of anti-oxidants in the form of nutrients including vitamin C, beta-carotene, vitamin E, and manganese. They also contain phyto-nutrients that boost the antioxidant power. Collard greens are also a good plant source of calcium.
Now to the wrap!
First remove the stems from the collards and assemble your wrap as you would a burrito or spring roll. There is a good tutorial at Choosing Raw.
I like to wrap mine in some parchment paper for on the go or just to keep it in tact while I gobble it down!
What is your favorite filling in a collard wrap?
