How to prepare collard greens for Wraps:
You can easily prepare these at the beginning of the week, store them in the fridge and have them to grab whenever you need to make a quick meal. Like I said before, you can stuff these with anything you like. Make a breakfast burrito, a delicious wrap for dinner, or make a loaded burrito for dinner. The possibilities are endless.
The first step is to trim the stem. Starting At the bottom of each green, cut along the spine on each side using a sharp paring knife and remove the stem.
Now, trim the spine of the collard greens. Cut so that the spine is as flat as the rest of the collard green.
Submerge each collard green into simmering water for 30 seconds. You can leave it in there for longer (40 seconds) if you want your greens a little softer. But don’t leave them in there for too long.
Transfer each collard green leaf to an ice bath (equal parts cold water and ice) and submerge it in the ice bath for at least 15 seconds
Now, place the collard green leaf (one at a time) between two clean paper or kitchen towels and pat the greens completely dry
