Healthy Collard Green Wraps - A Great Substitute for a BLT Sandwich

Try these amazingly healthy alternative to a BLT. These wonderful collard green wraps are loaded with great nutrition. Serve these for breakfast lunch and dinner - the entire family will love them as well as my friends.

Collard greens are often thought of as a Southern style dish, but collard greens and their cousins, beet greens,, dandelion greens, mustard greens and turnip greens are getting a lot more respect after they were introduced as a nutritional powerhouse.

Collard greens are loaded with beta-carotene which converts into Vitamin A, which is a very powerful antioxidant and is known for fighting cancer, and they are loaded with chlorophyll, enzymes, Vitamin C, calcium and fiber.

Quinoa delivers a complete protein source compared to other grains and twice the calcium of almost any plant base food source. The avocado provides healthy fats and miso is the fermented part of your meal and even though it’s sodium content is pretty high, this does not impact the body in the same way as regular salt - it can actually benefit your cardiovascular system and fermented foods should in general be part of a healthy diet, due to their many health benefits for the digestive and immune systems.

For the weight conscious, collards are great fat fighters, have few calories and provide you with a nice sense of being full.


8 large collard greens leaves – washed and dried
1 cup of dry quinoa – cooked
freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 large roughly chopped carrots
1 tblsp freshly grated ginger
1 small shallot – chopped
1 tblsp of miso paste
1 tblsp chia seeds
1 tblsp organic rice vinegar
1 tblsp sesame oil
pinch of Himalayan pink salt
1 grated raw beets
1 avocado – peeled, pitted and sliced
2 cups sprouts or micro greens

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



1. Cut the end stems off each collard leaf and shave down the stalk (I used a carrot peeler), making it the same thickness as the rest of the leaf.

2. Bring the cup of rinsed organic quinoa to a boil, reduce to a simmer for fifteen minutes

3. Mix the lemon juice into the quinoa and set aside

4. To make a carrot-Ginger paste, add the carrots, ginger, shallots, miso paste, chia seeds and rice vinegar in a food processor, and process until smooth.

5. Add the sesame oil and salt

6. Place a collard leave on your cutting board.

7. Spread out an even amount of the carrot ginger paste carrot spread in each wrap.

8. Top with quinoa, avocado slices, and then the shredded beet, and fill up with plenty of fresh sprouts.

9. Fold the collard sides over and roll them tightly – just like a burrito.

10. Serve immediately or store in the fridge

The wraps keeps fresh for 1-2 days in the fridge

Makes 8 wraps.
