2 collard green leaves (or 1 leaf per/wrap)
2 tbsps of quinoa per/wrap (or add to liking)
1 chicken breast sauteed & chopped
2 small cherry tomatoes (sliced)
yellow onion (small piece thinly sliced)
black pepper (to taste)
pink himalayan salt (to taste)
olive oil mayo (thinly spread)
In a large pot, fill 1/2 way with water & bring to a slight boil. Add your collard wraps & blanch for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat & remove collard wraps. On a cutting board place your wraps face down. Take a knife & cut off the bottom thick stem. Then take your knife & slim out the remaining thickness. Now turn your collard wrap face up, spread your mayo, & begin to insert your fillings. Finally, you are ready to WRAP & ROLL! Take your collard wrap & roll in the same manner as you would a burrito or a soft taco wrap. Enjoy!!
