    Homemade Kale Wraps

    Homemade kale wraps for delicious, healthy and quick sandwiches. This is the recipe that follows the post about the nutritional benefits of kale, but others will follow soon. Those who cannot find kale, have in mind that you can replace it with spinach in the same amount.

    These wraps are very easy and can be frozen for later use. I tried to refrigerate them before cooking them. After I prepared the dough, I divided it into 12 balls, cooked as many as I needed and the rest of them were wrapped, one by one, with plastic wrap and put in the freezer. The original recipe said that you can freeze them after cooking, but then will not be as soft. I admit that I didn’t try it. I like cooking them just before eating, to be fresher.

    The original recipe yields 12 wraps, exactly as mine. They have 18-20 cm. diameters, but next time I will make them a bit smaller. At last I have the opportunity to show you the rolling pin that I had won at the Torta della Figlia contest, with my recipe “Chocolate “Islands” in Pistachio Sauce.” It is adjustable so you can roll uniformly as thick the dough as desirable.

    In the next post I will have a recipe for a delicious filing 😉 Although your options are endless!

    Ingredients
    1. 110 g. kale, without the stalks
    2. ¾ cup milk 2% fat, warmed
    3. 3 cups all-purpose flour
    4. 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
    5. 1 teaspoon salt
    6. 4 tablespoons olive oil
    Instructions
    1. Blanch Kale in boiling water for a couple of minutes, until tender.
    2. Drain well, let cool for a few minutes, place it in the blender along with the milk and blend until smooth.
    3. In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and stir.
    4. Add oil and stir to get crumbly dough.
    5. Pour the kale mixture in the bowl with the flour and stir. It might need a little more flour.
    6. Knead for about 5 minutes, until the dough is soft and not sticky.
    7. Roll the dough in a plastic wrap and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
    8. Lightly flour a working surface. Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a thin circle, with the rolling pin. If you want perfectly round wraps, just use a plate with the desirable diameter as a guide to cut the dough.
    9. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook until slightly harden and golden brown spots have created on the surface.
    10. Leave to cool slightly and fill with the filling of your choice.
    Notes
    1. Dough can be stored in freezer for later use.
