When You Just Need an honest review in a pinch.

Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps

These make great appetizers and snacks.  They also make great lunches.  I actually make it and separate it into 1 cup servings that can be frozen for later (in freezer bags or freezer-friendly tupperware).  *Do NOT eat, if you have a peanut allergy!*

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 pounds extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 package (16 oz.) frozen stir-fry vegetable blend, thawed
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 10 Boston lettuce leaves
  • Additional hoisin sauce, optional

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook and stir turkey over medium-high heat until no longer pink.
  2. Coarsely chop mixed vegetables (a hand-chopper works best); add to the pan.  Stir in the teriyaki sauce, hoisin sauce, peanut butter, ginger, vinegar, and oil.  Cook and stir over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.  Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in green onions.  Place a scant 1/2 cup turkey mixture (I put less) on each lettuce leaf; fold lettuce over filling.  Serve with additional hoisin sauce if desired.  Enjoy!
