DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the thick stems off of the collard greens. Steam the collards for 3 to 4 minutes until soft and pliable. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey and all of the seasonings in a bowl.
  • Divide into 4 sections to form little logs.
  • Wrap each log in 3-4 collard leaves overlapped and wrapped around the turkey like wrapping a burrito or eggroll.
  • Place packets seam side down in a square 8x8 baking dish and top each with ¼ cup of salsa or enchilada sauce.
  • Cover with foil and bake until turkey is cooked through, about 40 minutes.
  • If you want to make this Italian instead of Mexican, omit the cumin and add 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning instead. You can omit the red chili flakes or leave them in, whatever your personal preference is.
  • Instead of topping with salsa, use marinara.
  • You can also add a dab of pesto on top of each one if you like.
