Laine Bergeson offers a creative and nutritious wrap substitute for anyone who’s cutting back on carbs, corn, or gluten — or eliminating them altogether.
Like wraps? Avoiding carbs, corn, or gluten? Wrap your dinner in a collard green.
Raw collard greens are sturdy, hold everything without breaking, and are insanely good for you. Eat some collard greens and increase your phytonutrient intake by one-million percent. OK, I’m exaggerating — but not by much. Here are just some of the things I’ve wrapped in this cruciferous vegetable:
- Egg scramble
- Tofu scramble
- A bison burger
- A grass-fed hamburger
- A spicy chicken sausage
- Keema (a ground lamb dish with Indian spices)
- Pumpkin pancakes and dark chocolate (weird, I know, but oddly edible)
