Recipe: Asian-Style Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Ground turkey is a good lean protein option to substitute for ground beef in a lettuce wrap, and with other delicious features like shiitake mushrooms, green onions, and the featured superfood this week, lettuce, you’ll have a tasty, healthier option than the standard burger or sausage to bring to the picnic or barbecue this spring!


  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (16 ounce) package ground turkey
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped water chestnuts
  • 4 teaspoons finely minced fresh ginger root (substitution: ½ teaspoon ground ginger)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame/vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 12 leaves green leaf lettuce


  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce


  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms in the hot oil until they are browned and softened, about 2 minutes. Remove the mushrooms from the pan. Reserve.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan. Cook and stir the turkey in the oil until it is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the green onions, water chestnuts, ginger, and garlic; continue to cook for 1 minute. Mix in the reserved mushrooms, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Simmer briefly to combine the flavors. Take the pan off the heat; stir in the rice vinegar, sesame oil, and orange zest.
  3. To assemble lettuce wraps, place a bit of turkey filling on each lettuce leaf. Top each with cooked noodles, and a sprinkle of bean sprouts, carrots, almonds, and cilantro. Serve with sweet chili sauce for dipping.

If you’re not a fan of ground turkey or can’t get a hold of it very easily, you can substitute ground beef, pork or chicken, or you can cube some cooked chicken breast, pork, or steak as well.
