Collard Green Wraps

2015-02-08 11.49.13We have continued to get a weekly produce box, which I absolutely love! The only downside is that in the winter months, we get A LOT of greens and I’m not always sure what to do with them. I can only eat a side of greens so many times per week. It has taken a bit of creativity to use up the greens before they go bad. Additionally it has taken some creativity to stick to our food budget with our current dietary restrictions, being that my husband is on a grain free low card diet and I am a vegetarian trying to reduce my grain intake. With those restrictions in mind I found the perfect use for our collard greens in the way of making sandwich wraps out of them. They add the perfect amount of spice and add to the crunch of whatever vegetables are in the wrap.

When using a good quality, flavorful cheese, like a raw gouda for example, a minimal amount is needed for big flavor, allowing your dollar to go further. As you can see there was just a small amount of cheese, but it was very flavorful!
