Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps

These Ground Turkey Lettuce wraps might be my new “go-to” dinner. They were so easy to make and packed with flavor. Cooking healthy can get boring sometimes so you need to find new recipes that get you excited about what you’re eating.

These lettuce wraps got me super excited! Thomas and I scarfed them down, but I still have some left over for lunch the next day. I highly recommend making a double batch of this stuff because it’s absolutely amazing. By the way, if you’re paleo these bad boys are Whole 30 Approved. Get to cooking!

Also, don’t be intimidated by the long list of ingredients they are all super easy and you might have most of them in your house already.

Ingredients:

For the Meat

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup of baby bella mushrooms, minced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 pound of ground turkey (or meat of your choice) You could also probably try it with just veggies.
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1/4 cup of coconut aminos (soy sauce if you don’t have them, but it won’t be paleo)
  • 2 teaspoon of sesame seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of sriracha (or whatever hot sauce you might have in the house)
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced.
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce

For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup of coconut aminos
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • dash of hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon green onions

Instructions:

  1. In a large skillet set over medium heat pour in your olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add onion and cook for about 3 minutes, then add your mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook for another minute or so.
  2. Add in your ground turkey or pork and cook until browned, crumble with a wooden spoon. Toss in your shredded carrots until softened.
  3. While that cooks, in a small bowl combine together 1/4  cup of the aminos, 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of rice wine vinegar, almond butter, ginger, and hot sauce. Whisk it all together until smooth and pour it over your meat mixture. Sir in 2 tablespoons of your green onion.
  4. Make the sauce and whisk it all together until it’s smooth.
  5. Pour a little bit of sauce over your lettuce wrap for extra mouth-watering flavor.

**Like I said, these lettuce wraps might be really nice for vegans as well if they want to try it with tofu or just extra veggies.

***Feel free to pour it over some quinoa or rice if you’d like, but the lettuce wraps worked out really well.
