These Collard Greens Wraps are one of my favorites!  They are made with blanched collard greens, instead of tortillas, so not only is it packed with nutrients, it is totally gluten-free! As a caterer, I am used to being asked to accommodate all sorts of dietary restrictions and requests. A common request is to prepare things gluten-free. Sometimes it’s difficult to find gluten-free products that mimic the real ones… and right now I’m talking specifically about tortilla’s and bread. They taste fine, but they don’t seem to hold up in the same way, or are dry and unpliable. After a frustrating go with rice, corn and quinoa tortilla’s,  I decided to try something completely different. Collard greens! So easy, and surprisingly tasty and sturdy. They hold up well and travel easily.

To Prep the collard greens, slice off the stem and remove, with a sharp knife, the thickest part of the large vein.

Drop in a pot of boiling, generously salted water, for 30-45 seconds. Remove and run under  cold water. Blot dry. Now they are soft and pliable and ready to fill.

Begin placing your ingredients at the bottom end of the collard green.

Today I added seared tofu, but chicken or beef would work well too, or baked tofu or smoked tofu.

  1. I have gestational diabetes and don’t think I could do sweet potato. Would butternut squash work? How would I cook it differently? .

  2. Can you make the collard green wraps the night before and have them the following day for lunch? Do you reheat or eat cold?

  3. These are DELICIOUS, you have opened up a whole new world for me with collards, I’m imagining stuffing them with all kinds fillings, yum!

  4. Made these last night! They were excellent! My husband, the red meat eater, had two and thought they were, also! 🙂

  5. I found you via Tastespotting because of your amazing photographs and the delicious sounding recipe. All I needed to do for the night was use up some yams but this recipe is one I will make again and again. It was decadently creamy but tasted like spring. I swapped the tofu for baked chicken and served with spanish rice. Although I otherwise followed the recipe to the letter, this is a great one to experiment with. Thanks for this!

  6. I found your site via pinterest and am excited to try out this recipe. I was surprised to see you mention Spokane, as I live in CDA. Our family is GF/Vegan, so we will be checking out Boots for sure!

  7. My goodness you’ve done an amazing thing with this blog. Seriously. You’ve totally gotten into the full swing of it, with the amazing pictures, the creative recipes, the different KINDS of recipes, and the “print this recipe” is the icing. As a newly, mostly gluten-free gal I couldn’t be happier to see you using REAL food instead of gluten-free tortillas with a bunch of confusion-enducing ingredients. Bah. Thank you! Your blog is officially bookmarked on my computer 🙂

  8. Love so many of your recipes. This one is going to bring color to my dreary Alaskan March day!

    Thanks.

  9. Love so many of your recipes! This is going to bring some color and heat to my dreary Alaskan March day!

    Thanks.

  10. Made these..and ate these today and they were incredible! The boiling / ice bath works perfectly. I filled mine with Guacamole, Sweet Potato and Granny Smith Apple slices. So delicious. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

  11. YUM YUM YUM! And… thank you for the shout out. You are lovely and nice and generous. And an amazing chef! xxx

    And also, I couldn’t figure out how to comment as just me… so, Alison at Boots. xxx
