This Thanksgiving Leftover Wrap is the perfect way to eat all of that leftover turkey without having to break out the elastic waistbands (2 days in a row). When I was a kid our typical thanksgiving left over was a white bread sandwich with mayo and big chunks of turkey. This is my grown-up, health coach version of that. This time of year is a time meant to be spent with family and friends, so I wanted to do something that didn’t require a bunch of time in the kitchen. As with all of my recipes, this dish is minimal effort, minimal ingredients, tasty, but still friendly to your insides.
Hope you enjoy this thanksgiving leftover wrap!
Here’s what you need: (No need for exact measurements, it’s just a wrap…eyeball it!)
Left over turkey – use two forks to shred
Collard Green Leaves – raw and rinsed (if you don’t have collard greens, romaine lettuce will do!)
Avocado Oil Mayo (I like Chosen Foods brand) OR sliced Avocado
Purple Onion – very thinly sliced, lengthwise
Tomato (optional) – thinly sliced
Here’s what you do:
Chop bottom stem off of one collard green leaf.
Spread Mayo on collard green – one thin layer will do. OR if you are using avocado slices, place two slices then squish and spread (it’s OK if it’s still chunky)
Place shredded turkey on top
Add in thinly sliced onions and tomatoes
Roll the leaf then slice on a diagonal creating two pieces.
