Naked Wraps: Using collard greens for your burritos and wraps

Here’s one of the cooler food tricks I’ve learned from Chef James Barry: use a collard green leaf instead of a tortilla for your burritos, enchiladas, and wraps. This is a great solution for those of you who are gluten-sensitive, have a corn allergy, or are just wanting to reduce the amount of starchy carbs in your diet. And really, what’s more naked than a lightly steamed collard green leaf?
You can fill your wrap with just about anything. We’ve got a great recipe in the book Eat Naked, but get creative and try some different things out!
The wrapping technique is a little finicky, so here’s a quick video demonstrating how to do it. With a couple of practice runs you’ll be a pro in no time!
