Swiss Chard Wraps

I posted these Swiss Chard Wraps on my Instagram last week.  They are basically the best “sandwich” you could ask for 😉

The best thing about a wrap like this, is that there are a million ways to make them.  You can sauté the vegetables (like I did) or simply keep them raw to save time.  You can add any type of meat/protein or none at all.  Condiments like mustard, salad dressing, or mayo can be smothered on your wrap or you can go without.  You can use any variety of large, leafy green.  Like I said, there are so many ways to customize your wrap.

But for the purpose of this post, I’m going to share the ingredients I used for this Swiss Chard Wrap.

Swiss Chard Wrap

Ingredients

  • 1 large leaf red Swiss chard
  • snap peas
  • asparagus
  • sliced red pepper
  • sliced shallot
  • coconut oil
  • Himalayan pink salt & crushed pepper
  • Leftover pork ribs
  • Shredded carrot
  • Gorgonzola cheese crumbles

Instructions

  1. Prep all veggies.  (Wash and cut)
  2. Sauté snap peas, asparagus, red pepper, and shallot in coconut oil, pink salt and pepper in a frying pan.
  3. Cut off the thick part of the stem of the red Swiss chard.  While vegetables are sautéing, layer pork, shredded carrot and Gorgonzola crumbles on red Swiss chard leaf.
  4. Take sauteed vegetables off frying pan and add to swiss chard.
  5. Carefully roll up and then cut in half.

That last step is easier said than done.  Rolling up the Swiss chard can be quite the task.  This is a messy meal, but so worth it for the taste and nutritional punch!
