Shop IngredientsHow this works
- 4 large collard green leaves
- 3 ounces chicken, diced*
- 2 slices sugar-free bacon, cooked
- 1/4 red bell pepper sliced into 1/4-inch strips
- 1/4 yellow belly pepper sliced into 1/4-inch strips
- 2 tablespoons alfalfa sprouts
- 2 tablespoons carrots, shredded
- 2 tablespoons Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing, for dipping
grain-free, paleo- and keto-friendly tortilla or wrap
- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil on the stove. Fill a large bowl about 3/4 way full with cold water and ice and place on the counter next to the stove.
- Remove the tough stems from the collard green leaves. Wash them.
- Place the collard green leaves in the pot with boiling water, and cook for 30 seconds. Remove the leaves using tongs, and plunge immediately into the ice water for 20 seconds.
- Use the tongs to remove the collard green leaves from the ice water, and place on clean kitchen towels. Blot the water off of the leaves with an additional dry kitchen towel.
- Cut a square of parchment paper and place it on a flat surface in a diamond shape so that the point of the paper is facing towards you. Arrange two large (or three smaller) pieces of collard greens next to one another vertically, and then the other two large (or three smaller) pieces of collards next to one another horizontally across the first layer of leaves.
- In the center of the collard green leaves, place chicken, bacon, and vegetables.
- Carefully pull up the piece of parchment towards you and begin rolling up the collard chicken bacon wrap, tucking the sides in as you go. When you finish wrapping, carefully slice the wrap in half with a sharp knife.
- Gently pull back the parchment as you begin to eat the wrap. Serve the wrap with Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing for dipping.
How to Prepare the Collard Greens to Use as a Grain- and Gluten-Free Wrap
- Place a large pot of water on the stove on medium high. Add a few pinches of salt to the water. Bring water to a boil.
- Set up a large bowl filled with ice water on the counter.
- Release the leaves from the twist tie and wash them thoroughly.
- Remove the thick stems that run down the center of each leaf (this will make it easier to fold the greens into a wrap).
- Drop collard leaves into the boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove the leaves and plunge them in the bowl with ice water for 20 seconds. Remove the leaves from the ice water and dry them with clean kitchen towels.
