This recipe also taught me something new about my daughter…she loves eating things wrapped in lettuce. What!?

She’s usually not a huge fan of meat, but you put it in a lettuce wrap and suddenly it’s ok.

Had I known this, I would have been wrapping everything in lettuce. I’m hoping it’s not just because it’s new to her.

I am now determined to find other ways to make dinner more fun, which apparently is as easy as wrapping it in lettuce haha!

So let’s talk about how you make them!

To make these Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps, you will need:

  • Ground turkey: Ground chicken or beef would also work.
  • Green onions: Regular diced onion can be used as well.

  • Head of lettuce or romaine: I personally like to use romaine lettuce to make wraps, but any large lettuce will work as well.
  • Garlic
  • Salt and pepper

Sauce ingredients

  • Coconut aminos: Any gluten free Soy Sauce like Tamari may also be used.
  • Peanut butter
  • Coconut sugar: Brown sugar can be used instead.
  • Sesame oil

HOW TO MAKE EASY LETTUCE WRAPS:

  1. Cook ground turkey: Add ground turkey to a large pan and cook over medium high heat until no pink remains in the turkey (about 5-8 minutes).

    1. Hi Christa! Wow Butter should work great! The flavor will be slightly different from peanut butter, but overall it should be very similar.

  1. Hi there! Love your blog! Do you think I could use sunflower butter instead of peanut butter? Thanks for your help!

    1. Hi Katy! Thank you so much! Yes, sunflower butter should work great. The peanut butter is mainly for flavor so if you like the flavor of sunflower butter then it will be a great addition to the dish. ?

    1. Hi Bethany! You can definitely leave out any nut ingredients and still have a delicious meal! I recommend keeping the ginger and sesame oil if you can have those. They add a lot of flavor. ?

  2. We had this tonight and everyone loved it, including my 5 year old! He ate like 3! We left out the carrots (mainly because they were substituted with baby carrots in my shopping order pickup) and added diced water chestnuts. Fantastic! Thank you!!! Definitely adding to the meal rotation here.
