First and foremost Mashed Potatoes and Sauerkraut have always been a favorite of mine. And I do mean together.
But just have a look at these lovely beautiful green leaves. I knew the two belonged Happily together.
And I can always remember sauerkraut and mashed potatoes as a favorite of mine even growing up.
It’s kind of one of those dishes that get put on the back burner..Well guys I’m here to bring it back in a new light.

- optional ingredients:
- 2 carrots peeled and shredded
- 1/2 small red cabbage chopped

For Collard Greens:
Bring large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
Fill a separate large bowl with cold water and ice.
Cut stem off end of each leaf and trim any thick part off stem.
Carefully add leaves to boil water one at a time. You just want to leave them in for a minute to blanch them.
With tongs remove leaves and place in cold water bath.
Lay leaves on paper towels layering a paper towel between each leaf.
Set aside and prepare fillings of choice**
Spread about 2 tbsp. mashed potatoes directly down middle of leaf, next top with sauerkraut, and any other fillings of choice.
Wrap like you would normally wrap a burrito tucking in both sides and rolling.
*I used about 4-5 Yukon gold potatoes
** I used mashed potatoes that had butter but for vegan option just omit that or use vegan butter.
