Cooking With Kimme: Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Time to SPICE it UP (because it’s almost officially Summer) and to cut back on the fat (because it’s ALMOST OFFICIALLY SUMMER!!) This is a quick and easy way to get some super flavor (and spice if you want it) without all the fat! Crispy, fresh, YUM. These are a must try!! Adjust ‘spiciness’ to your taste. Make sure you have a good napkin, these may be healthy, but they can get messy too!

Lettuce wraps:
1 pound ground turkey
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
5-ounce can water chestnuts, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
10-12 iceberg lettuce leaves (carefully pulled from core ), chilled
Toppings:
Bean sprouts Shredded carrots Fresh cilantro leaves
Sauce for drizzling:
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon dijon mustard (or Hot Chinese mustard for spicy!)
1/2 tablespoon Sriracha (of Asian chili sauce)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
**1/4 cup water to finalize
Prepare topping ‘parts’ – bean sprouts, shred carrots using a vegetable peeler, pull leave from cilantro. Set aside until ready to serve.
Prepare sauce for drizzling – combine all ingredients in small serving using a whisk. Set aside until ready to serve.
Brown the turkey in a large sauté pan in oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms, green onions, water chestnuts and garlic, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.
In the meantime, stir soy sauce brown sugar and rice wine vinegar until mostly combined. Pour over turkey mixture, making sure to get all ingredients into the pan. Stir until combined and take off of heat.
To server – use lettuce leaves as a ‘wrapper’ – fill with turkey mixture, top with prepared ‘toppings’ and drizzle with prepared sauce.
