Directions

Filling the wrap

1Wash and dry your collard or lettuce leaves. Watch the embedded video in my blog post about how to properly cut the spine of collard greens in order to get a perfectly rolled wrap.

2Once dry, add strands of cabbage first, then a tablespoon of your grain.

3Top with a heaping spoonful of beans, seeds, and your vegetables of choice.

4Add a small amount of dressing and squeeze lime, lemon or orange on top of your ingredients before rolling. Slice rolls in half and enjoy!

5Depending on your number of leaves and how much you fill them, you should be able to make 4 to 6 wraps with the above ingredients.
