Lettuce Wraps

Eat a little healthier, without giving up any flavor

  • Serves 8
  • Easy




Being busy doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still be able to eat healthy, home cooked meals. It just means that there has to be a bit more planning to get meals on the table…or in your lap, in the car, on your way out the door.

Anyone who’s been to P.F. Chang’s (you know, that nationwide restaurant chain) has tried their lettuce wraps. They’re good. It’s actually the only thing I really like on the menu. But we’ll leave that at that.

Making your own lettuce wraps at home is a great way to eat a little healthier, without giving up any flavor. Oh, and it’s ready in under a half hour. Not too shabby.

The crunch of the slivered almonds and crisp lettuce, along with the spicy sriracha and savory soy sauce fulfills all your cravings after a long day.

What are your secrets for getting a homemade dinner on the table after a long day? I’d love to hear!


For leftovers, store meat separately from the lettuce. When you want to serve it again, refresh the meat mixture with a couple hits of soy sauce and sriracha to give it a little more life.

Recipe Steps


Heat a large skillet or dutch oven over medium heat. Add the olive oil. Heat until shimmering.


Add the garlic, ginger, ground turkey and red bell pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is no longer pink.


Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon juice, sriracha, rice wine vinegar and Hoisin sauce.


Pour the sauce mixture over the cooked turkey mixture. Stir to combine. Let simmer for about one minute, or until everything is heated through.


Stir in the slivered almonds and green onions.


Serve the meat mixture in a bowl on a platter with the lettuce leaves. Spoon the meat mixture into the lettuce leaves and eat the lettuce wraps with your hands.

I made these the other night, and they were delicious! I might try butter lettuce next time, but the romaine worked well. Thanks for sharing!
