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.
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.
