How to Prep Collard Green Wraps – a step-by-step tutorial on how to prep your collard greens so you can make wraps out of them!


  • 1 bunch of collard greens
  • filling ingredients of your choice


  1. Remove stem: you want to flatten the raised stem. Use a sharp knife to shave it down, getting as close to the leaf as possible.  You do this so that the leaf will be more bendable without the stiff stem.  Then remove the end of the collard green leaf stem.
  2. Boil: take a large, flat saucepan or skillet and fill it with water. Warm up this water so that bubbles just begin to form at the bottom.  Take your greens, one at at time, and place in the almost boiling water for about 5 seconds, making sure it is fully submerged.
  3. Ice bath: using tongs, gently remove the greens from the hot water and place immediately in an ice bath.  Fully submerge until it has cooled.
  4. Dry: place a piece of paper towel on your plate, set your first green on top of that and then top the greens with another paper towel.  Press gently to ensure the greens are very dry.  Repeat if prepping multiple greens.
  5. Fill: lay the greens so that the stem parallel to the edge of your counter.  Take your filling ingredients and lay them lengthwise along the stem.
  6. Fold: fold in the sides first, then take the part of the greens that is closest to you and fold it over.  As you fold it over, you will essentially tuck it under the filling and then simply continue rolling until you have a wrap.
