Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I love lettuce wraps from PF Changs, but I thought, there’s gotta be a healthier version!  So I found this recipe online the other day and tweaked it a little.  It was incredible!  My husband and I absolutely loved it, but there are a couple things we’ll do differently next time (like add in some more veggies and shredded carrots to name a couple…).
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb raw 93% lean ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red or green bell pepper, chopped (I used both)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 2/3 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • 1 Tbs Braggs Aminos
  • 1 Tbs rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro
  • Butter leaf lettuce leaves and baby arugula
  • Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add turkey, onion, and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently for 4-6 minutes, or until turkey is cooked through and onion is translucent
  • add garlic, green onion, water chestnuts, soy sauce, and vinegar; cook, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • add cilantro; mix well.  remove from heat.
  • evenly spoon mixture onto lettuce leaves.  Wrap the leaves around mixture and eat!


We discovered that there were a couple variations to this as well.  I decided that I just needed more greens, so I added in some baby arugula which really added some great flavor and even poured on some balsamic vinaigrette.
