Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps are healthy and delicious.  They can also be very versatile as you can use different proteins as your base: ground pork, chicken or turkey, or tofu.

I used turkey tonight.  Usually I do pork but I wanted to experiment.


  • 1 lb ground turkey/pork or chicken
  • 1 can of sliced water chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup chives
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • A head of bibb or butter leaf lettuce

Saute your protein in your skillet until mostly done, then add your vegetables.



Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until your veggies start to become opaque.  Then add the rest of the ingredients, excluding the lettuce and chives.  Allow to blend together, stirring, for 5-10 minutes.  Serve.
