Submitted by: Gabrielle Peters
I got this recipe from RecipeZarr, but made a few adjustments to my liking. You can find the original recipe here: http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:aqNp9uEHgwAJ:www.recipezaar.com/Healthy-Lettuce-Wraps-167675+healthy+lettuce+wraps&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl

Serves: 2-4
Difficulty: Easy - for beginners

Preparation time:
Cooking time:

Ingredients

* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
* 1 lb ground turkey (cooked)
* 1/2 tablespoon fresh cilantro
* 2 tablespoons lime juice
* 1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger, sliced (optional)
* 1 teaspoon cumin
* 1 teaspoon pepper
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 cup peanuts (or almonds), crushed
* 1 head lettuce

Method

1. Heat onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent.
2. Add ground turkey and cook thoroughly.
3. Add remaining ingredients and cook for 5 minutes.
4. Serve in a bowl and add a spoonful to the middle of a lettuce leaf.
5. Wrap, eat and enjoy.

For a sauce to add on top, I mix a half cup of sweet and sour sauce with a tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce. I am currently looking for other options though, so if you know any, let me know!

To make a spicier version add cayenne pepper in place of the regular pepper and also add 1-2 tablespoons of cilantro instead of 1/2 a tablespoon.

Sometimes I will add colored peppers with the onion to make the meal more aesthetically pleasing.. I will soon try to make a version with mushrooms and carrots as well :)
