Collard-Wrapped Yellow Rice and Black Bean Enchiladas from Wild About Greens (& Giveaway!)

Collard Wraps on Diet, Dessert and Dogs

As promised yesterday, I’ve got an amazing recipe for you today from Nava Atlas’s Wild About Greens (to read my interview with Nava and learn more about the book, go here).  But seems I got the name of the recipe wrong! The collard-wrapped enchiladas reminded me so much of my mum’s erstwhile cabbage rolls that I mistakenly labeled them “Collard Rolls.” We are obviously so accustomed to spicy foods in this house that I could make that mistake. While the enchiladas definitely aren’t “over-the-top” spicy, they are certainly more zippy than old-fashioned cabbage rolls!

Despite the long ingredient list, this is a recipe that’s easy to make. In fact, it’s one of my favorite kinds: to wit, the kind you dump into a casserole dish and pop in the oven, then forget about until it’s ready to eat.

I was in heaven going through Wild About Greens: I mean, it’s a whole book about GREENS!! From the useful info on basic preparation tips and health benefits of greens to the simple braises and sautés with an assortment of pick-as-you choose sauces (Sesame Ginger–mmm!), to greens with grains or pasta, to greens in soups and stews or greens in juices and smoothies–well, I love them all.  If you love greens–or are just looking for more ways to incorporate them into your diet–you’ll love them, too.  So don’t forget to check below the recipe and enter the giveaway, too!

Thanks again to Nava for the interview and for sharing this delectable recipe.

I’m linking this recipe to Amy’s Slightly Indulgent Tuesday.
