RECIPE: Asian Turkey Lettuce Wrap | Clean Eating

I made this back-to-back days (Sunday/Monday) because we loved it so much. 

The Clean Program blog is a GREAT resource for healthy recipes 
They get the credit for the yumminess.
I just stepped into my kitchen and cooked.
And took a photo when done.

 
ASIAN TURKEY LETTUCE WRAP

(serves 4)

Ingredients:

1 pound ground turkey

2 Tablespoons coconut oil

2 carrots, finely chopped or grated

3 cloves garlic, minced

Fresh ginger to taste (recipe called for 2 Tablespoons -- that would be so strong so I only put in a little grated ginger -- half a teaspoon ish)

1 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice powder

2 Tablespoons wheat-free tamari

2 Tablespoons rice vinegar

1 Tablespoon coconut nectar

1 can water chestnuts, chopped

1 head Boston, bibb lettuce or endive (my favorite is bibb)

chopped cilantro

2 green onions, chopped

1 lime


Instructions:

1. Melt coconut oil in skillet over medium heat

2. Add chopped carrots and cook for several minutes

3. Add garlic, ginger, turkey and Chinese 5-spice powder and 
saute 3-5 minutes, until turkey is thoroughly cooked

4. Add water chestnuts and cook 3 more minutes

5. Add tamari, rice vinegar and coconut nectar 
and stir well and cook for a couple more minutes.

6. Put one scoop of turkey mixture into lettuce leaves. 
Top with green onions and cilantro.

7. Squeeze fresh lime over the top -- delicious touch!


The kids had it again tonight for supper.
Definitely  a kid-friendly and adult-friendly meal!

Highly recommend that you give it a go!
