Spicy Turkey Lettuce Wraps unwrapped

20 Mar

These came out surprisingly good! The combo of veggies with meat was really good. No lettuce in the house so I served it over sushi rice.

adapted from our best bites


16 ounces ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped green onions
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 1/2 cups seeded and diced cucumber
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup chopped cashews
Sriracha sauce to taste
Juice of 2 limes (about 4 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar


In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Cover and refrigerate until dinner time or allow to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

When ready to cook, heat about 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the turkey mixture until it’s browning and crumbly.

While the turkey is cooking, combine the limes, soy sauce, brown sugar, and Sriracha to taste. Set aside.

Place the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. When the turkey is done cooking, add it to the vegetable mixture. Drizzle with the sauce and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
