I saw the idea of using collard greens as wraps on Pinterest. Where else? Except I think it was for some vegan wrap. Schmeh. I want some meat. I was home one day and sorting through the fridge looking at things that needed to be cooked. Sausage? Squash? Collard Greens? Yes.
Sausage, Squash and Collard Wraps – Serves 6
- 6 large collard green leaves
- 6 sausages, any type
- 2 acorn squash, cut into wedges
- Oil for rubbing on the squash
- Seasoning of your choice (make sure it goes well with the sausage!)
I grilled the acorn squash slices on the BBQ. You could also roast them. I left the skin on, as it is easy to pull off once your squash is cooked. I tossed the wedges in some melted coconut oil and sprinkled with an organic dried veggie seasoning from Costco.
Grill or bake your sausages. Mine were red wine and garlic flavoured.
Lay down a collard green leaf (break the thick steam off), throw on a few squash wedges and roll them up like a burrito! You may find it easier to cut your sausages in half and make mini-wraps. It will all depend on the size of your leaves and your sausages.
This would probably transport really well for a packed lunch. I ate mine hot, but they would be good cold as well.
