Basic Collard Wrap

  2. Remove the leaves from the skillet and place face down on a flat surface.
  3. Place your desired ingredients inside the center of the steamed collard green leaf and roll it up lengthwise like a burrito. Place a toothpick through the wrap to secure it and serve immediately.
