Asian Lettuce Wraps

These lettuce wraps are my husbands favourite. I’ve been makingΒ them for several years now, but he still requests them for dinner almost every week. Enjoy!

1 lbs Ground Turkey

2 tbsp. ginger, minced

2 Cloves of garlic, minced

1 C onion, diced

1/2 C water chestnuts, diced

2 tsp Asian five spice

2 tbsp. Tamari (or other soy sauce)

2 tbsp. Hoisin sauce

1 tbsp. Honey

1 tsp Chili flakes (optional)

1 head of Butter lettuce (Iceberg or Romaine also work)

2 Carrots, julienned

1 Red pepper, julienned

1/4C Cashews, chopped and toasted

Heat oil in skillet. Add onion, garlic and ginger. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in Asian five spice and cook for 1 more minute. Mix in Turkey and cook until no longer pink. Stir in Water chestnuts.

In a small bowl mix together Tamari, Hoisin sauce, Honey and Chili flakes (if using). Add to turkey mixture and cook until heated through.

To serve, spoon mixture on to lettuce leaves. Top with Carrots, peppers, and cashews.
