The Asian flavors of lemongrass and ginger pair perfectly with ground pork and vegetables. Wrap it up in steamed collard greens for a lunch or dinner that everyone will love.
LEVEL all YIELD 6-8 wraps
- 1 bunch of collards, steamed
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 carrots, thinly sliced into matchsticks

- Wash collards, removing hard stems. In a steamer basket, layer the collards. Steam until they are soft & pliable.
- In a large skillet, sauté ginger, lemongrass & garlic in oil. Once they become soft & fragrant, add in your ground pork. Stir until pork is evenly cooked.
- Add in carrots, cabbage, lime juice & coconut aminos. Stir frequently until the sauce is well combined & your veggies are soft.
- To assemble wraps, lay one collard leaf flat & place pork mixture in the center. Top with crushed macadamia nuts. Fold down the top & bottom, then fold in each side. Roll leaf over if more folding is required.
