Collard Green Wraps with Spiced Beef Filling
Collard greens provide a nutrient-dense wrapper for spiced beef in these wraps, which are reminiscent of Greek dolmas. Mix things up by substituting turkey or lamb for the ground beef if desired.

Instructions
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion and sauté until transluscent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the beef, 1 teaspoon salt, the cumin, paprika, cinnamon, and pepper. Break up the beef with a spatula until incorporated with the onion and spices and in small bits. Cook until the beef is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  2. Fill an 8-quart pot with water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Make a V-cut and remove the thickest part of the collards’ center stems while leaving the leaves intact. Bisect the leaves lengthwise. You will have 10 to 12 leaf halves, each approximately 5 inches wide. (If you are working with smaller leaves, remove the stem but keep the leaves whole).
  3. Put the leaves in the boiling water with the remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Don’t stir but make sure the leaves are completely submerged. Allow them to boil until still bright green but limp, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the contents of the pot through a large colander and rinse the leaves in cold water to stop the cooking.
