    12 medium to large leaves of swiss chard (red or green), rinsed well; cut out the thickest part of the stem (about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the leaf)
    4-5 oz sliced or shredded part-skim, low-moisture mozzarella
    12 tsp tomato paste
    3 large (or 6 small) tomatoes, quartered
    1 tsp (approx) salt-free herb seasoning mix
    salt to taste (optional)


Place 4 leaves (still fairly wet from being rinsed) on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on HIGH for about 25 seconds.
Lay the leaves face-down on a non-stick jellyroll sheet (or similar) with stems lined up from north to south.
Lay 1/4 ounce of the cheese in the center, in a 2-inch-long rectangle, from north to south.
Spread 1 teaspoon of the tomato paste over the cheese, then top with 2 tomato quarters (if using small tomatoes) and sprinkle with about 1/16th teaspoon of the herb seasoning over the tomato filling.
Fold north and south ends of leaf over the filling, then fold in the sides to create a burrito-like wrap.
Place on jellyroll pan, stem side up.
Repeat with remaining leaves and filling.
Preheat oven to broil.
Broil, with pan about 6 inches from the flame, for 2 minutes.
Flip wraps over and broil the other side for 2 minutes more. Sprinkle with salt over the top, if desired.
Yield: about 6 servings (2 wraps per person)

    My husband and I have been using Swiss Chard and Collard greens for roll-ups for a couple of years now. Great, tasty meals with far less calories than using tortillias. We use all sorts of fillings, anything you can put in a regular roll-up. - 8/16/09

    Sounds very much like a cabbage roll. Yum. Perhaps adding shredded carrot, onions and garlic would be great. And possibly for fiber add oats, bran or brown rice. - 8/16/09

    Instead of chard, which I don't like, I used cabbage instead. Very tasty. I will make it again - 8/16/09
