Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps

This meal is a go-to quick one for our family of 6. Not only is it delicious, but it’s healthy as well, and… The kids love it. That alone makes it a no-brainer win in my book.

I knew I would share it here, but I wasn’t sure when… Then I thought well…. It’s a favorite and an easy one so why not go with it.

So… Here it is.

I hope your family enjoys this as much as ours does.

Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps
Ingredients
Lettuce, washed and separated
1 pound ground poultry (I used turkey)
5 cloves garlic, minced
(you may use less, 5 is my minimum, but really who uses less than 5 we can’t be friends.)
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup of hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
3 tsp sriracha
2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 bunch of green onions, sliced
salt & pepper, to taste

Optional Ingredients
1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained & chopped
(Mr. Foodie made me put this as optional… Ha!)

Directions

1. Season meat with the with salt and pepper, then cook until browned.
Drain it then set aside.

2. While the meat is set aside sauté the onions up a bit
to make them soft. My guy, (Mr. Foodie) isn’t the biggest fan of onions to begin with, so this is a compromise I make to have them in this dish because I love them. Ha!

3. Once the onions were sautéed, I added the meat back in,
then I also added the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, minced ginger,
sriracha, and the red wine vinegar.
I let that that cook for about 5 minutes, then added the green onions and if you add the water chestnuts this is when you add them as well, then let that cook for about 3-5 more minutes.

A quick, easy, healthy, and delicious weeknight family meal! One note I’d like to add… This meal is delicious vegetarian as well. It is awesome made with tofu or tempeh, both retain the flavors of this dish really well.

Until Next Taste,

Lori
