Collard Green Wraps filled with Cauliflower and Miso Pesto

Hello everyone, I recently created this dish, it seems slightly long winded, but really very simple. So here is the first recipe - there are 3 parts to the recipe.

Miso Pesto

1 bunch Basil or Cilantro
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon white miso
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1 tablespoon good quality extra virgin olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until a paste is formed. Set aside.

Collard Greens

Take one bunch of collard and wash then and take out the thick stems. Cut the leaves into halves an steam lighlty for 1 minute. Cool and set aside.


Chop the cauliflower into very small pieces, so that it looks like crumbled feta cheese. Then mix the pesto into the cauliflower. Then take the collard greens and place 2 or 3 tablespoons of the cauliflower mixture close to the end of the green and roll it up. Then you will have beautiful wraps which can be served as an appetizer or a main course.

Collard greens are one of the healthiest veggies you can eat. Collard greens are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, folate, dietary fiber, and calcium. In addition, collard greens are a very good source of potassium, vitamin B2 and vitamin B6, and a good source of vitamin E, magnesium, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B1, vitamin B5, niacin, zinc, phosphorus, and iron.
