These Ground Turkey Lettuce Boats are SUPER easy and SUPER delicious! Very filling and also refreshing! Great as an appetizer or even as an entree! I used this recipe from the Food Network as a reference, but I put my own spin on it!
Cook the ground turkey in medium-high heat. I seasoned mine a bit with Kirkland’s “No-Salt Seasoning” and some pepper. Add in about 1/4 cup of red onions or shallots, doesn’t matter. Add in 1/4 cup of water chestnuts for the wonderful crunch. Then add in about a tablespoon of minced garlic. I didn’t have any mushrooms, but I can imagine how delicious that would be!
Once the turkey is cooked, add in all the good stuff you just cut up and let it cook. I also added in some green onions to give it a bit of color, as well as crushed red pepper flakes for a kick.
Put the soy sauce mixture from the recipe in the ground turkey and let it cook. I added some Sriracha sauce for more spice, which is where the Asian twist comes from!
I only had shredded carrots to garnish, which worked out really well. Gives it a really good crunch!
Here’s the final product:
The dipping sauce is perfect, adds acidity and sweetness to the entire thing!
I highly recommend this recipe. Put your own twists on things depending on whatever you like. It’s SO good!
Happy eating! And go Warriors!
