I've only used collard greens in soups so I was curious to try this to get a variety of greens in a cool summer dish. I was quite surprised at how tasty and easy they were to make. Since I am gluten free I make a tasty split moong dal aka-(split mung bean)crepe in place of a tortilla or wrap. I served it like a burrito topped with picante or enchilada sauce. Savory Crepe recipe: 1 cup split moong dal soaked for an hour or overnight and then drain water; put in blender with 3/4 to 1 cup plant-based milk (I like flax or almond milk)with a little onion seasoning, sea salt or tamari) Keep the seasoning mild what ever you choose to use. Blend in blender until smooth. Batter should be thin and pourable. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup batter in skillet(small vs large crepe). Medium heat, cover to cook flip over. then add filling. Go to "Youtube" to see how to make crepes

We originally tried this out of curiosity...and now it is one of our staples! Somehow the collards packed into a wrap provides a "meaty" texture as you bite into it- it is awesome. We have to make a quadruple batch for four people because we love it so much. Talk about a great way to pack in a lot of greens!

Trader Joe's was out of collards so I purchased the Cruciferous Crunch, an already shredded blend of kale, brussel sprouts, green, and red cabbage. It made for almost no prep time (only mincing the cilantro) and was delicious! I think if you wanted to make it a little lighter, you could adjust by reducing slightly the amount of almond butter and increasing the amount of salsa. I think it would also be great to add fresh chopped tomatoes and/or a bit of sliced avocado if you happen to have them on hand.

I was in the mood for a wrap today but didn't feel like a trip to the grocery store so tried my own version of this, made for just one. I took a handful of swiss chard, about 1/4 cup salsa, a carrot, a dash of coriander (didn't have cilantro), dash of cumin, dash of chili powder and a handful of almonds. Pulsed it all together very briefly in the blender and put in a pita pocket. Ultra fast and ultra delicious! I can't wait to try this with the "real" ingredients! Think I will still use the carrot though.

@ klinevj --Thank you so much for the crepe recipe you posted in the comments above! It makes an awesome wrap, and an easy way to get my beans in.

The recipe should be updated to add a link for the salsa:

Where does one find a whole grain wrap?  I have seen whole wheat wraps, never whole

Love, love, love this recipe. I did not have fresh collards, so I used kale and ate it with a bowl of green and cherry tomatoes. It was so good. I am planning on making it again this week.

I have tried sooo many recipes on this website that I have loved and this one is actually the first that I really really did not like!  I wanted to like it because of all of the good reviews and it was super easy to make!  But I couldn't even eat it.  And I love collard greens!  Bummer!!
