Asian Lettuce Wraps

Ready in 45 minutes

The hardest thing about these was trying to get a photo that looked appetising. The next hardest thing was trying not to eat them so fast. This recipe was inspired by many I found on the internet. Non seemed to be exactly as I wanted so here is my version of the Asian Lettuce Wraps.

"I forgot to add soy sauce and it was still very flavorful. I used jicama instead of water chestnuts just to have something fresh instead of canned. If planning for leftovers I suggest adding jicama/water chestnut and cashews when you are ready to eat in order to keep the crunch"

Preparation

Gently cut out the core of the head of lettuce and begin to remove the leaves in one piece as best as you can. These will be like lettuce taco shells. Wash and dry the leaves gently.

Brown the turkey and mince well. Drain if necessary. Set the meat aside and in the same pan on medium heat add all the veggies. In a small bowl combine the sauces and the ginger. Pour into the veggie mixture. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Add cashew pieces and meat. Cook for another 4 minutes.

Serve spoon fulls in the lettuce leaves and enjoy.

You might want to add a spicy sauce to top each one with if you prefer more heat.

Very tasty. Messy and a little hard to eat but, armed with a few napkins, you are in for a treat.
