Fresh and Healthy Lettuce Wraps


for the sauce

  • 3 T. hoisin sauce an all-natural brand if you can find it
  • 1 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. sirarcha sauce
  • 1 T. white wine or rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 t. light brown sugar
  • 1 t. sesame oil
  • 1/2 t. salt

for the filling

  • 1 T. grapeseed or canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • 2 T. fresh grated ginger
  • 1 c. shredded carrots divided
  • 1/2 c. minced onion
  • 1/2 c. chopped red pepper
  • 1/2 c. chopped yellow pepper
  • 1 small green apple peeled and shredded
  • 1 lb. ground turkey the 99% fat-free brand I used was about 1 1/3 lbs... I used it all
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. frozen peas
  • Boston or Bibb lettuce washed and separated into individual leaves for serving


  • Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well with a fork. Set aside.
  • In a stock pot, heat the grapeseed or canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, green onions and fresh ginger and saute for about 1 minute. Add the onion, peppers, apple, and half the shredded carrots and saute, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and salt and saute, breaking up the meat. Cook for another 7 - 8 minutes, or until the meat is beginning to brown and is completely cooked through. Turn the heat to medium and stir in the sauce and peas. Cook for about 2 minutes and remove from heat.
  • Allow filling to cool a bit and serve right away with the lettuce, or refrigerate the filling and reheat in the microwave when ready to serve.
  • Top the wraps with the remaining shredded carrots and extra sirarcha sauce, if desired.
