How I love Collards!



Just a quick post to give respect to my favorite green.. Collards! They are a nutritional powerhouse! Just look at the stats!



You can wrap up all of your favorite filling on a raw or lightly blanched green and save around 200 calories and add major nutrition to your meals, replacing a large flour tortilla or two pieces of bread!


Raw Eggless Salad
Here are some of my favorite fillings:

Of course, you can always cook your greens too!

Do you enjoy collard wraps?

  1. I like my greens lightly steamed rather than raw, but they can still hold a spread. Thanks for the links to so many delicious-sounding fillings.

  2. I like the idea of collard wraps better than any thing I think. I've been on a kale kick lately, but I think I'll substitute with collards this week. Thanks for all the ideas!

  3. Me too, me too! I love collard wraps and I love collards in my morning green smoothie (fabulous with cacao nibs). Good and good for us!

  6. Collards, Chard I love it all but these are especially good for wraps like you do.

    I have to make those wonderful fillings to use in my husband's sandwiches. Whenever I make him chickpea salad, etc, he ends up sharing half of his sandwich to workmates because they love them.

  7. What a lovely ode to collards, and thanks for compiling the links to all your delish spreads that I need to try.

    I think collards, kales, mustards...the brassica family in general, are the ideal human food stuff...packed with the nutrition that we thrive on, so so good for us!

  8. I need to try a collard wrap again. I tried it raw once and didn't really care for it. I need to try it slightly blanched maybe?

    Thanks for posting those links to your favorite fillings. I'll have to try some of those! They sound so good!

  12. I wish I could say I love collard wraps, but I've never seen collard here in Canberra, Australia!! Lettuce cups are my option :(
