Healthy Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps




Currently craving Shinsei’s chicken wraps – here is my take (made with ground turkey). Super easy and insanely delicious…and husband approved (which is always nice + not an easy accomplishment in my house). Serve with brown rice or cauliflower rice!















  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 small bunch green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 (8 oz) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 12 Boston lettuce leaves

For the Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons roasted red chili paste
  • Salt + pepper



  • Chop onion and mince garlic
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat
  • Add the ground turkey and diced onions, cook until turkey is completely browned
  • Add garlic and ginger to turkey and stir to combine, lower heat and continue to cook for about 2 – 3 minutes
  • In a bowl combine turkey mixture, water chestnuts and green onions
  • Whisk together all ingredients for the sauce
  • Drizzle sauce over turkey mixture and stir to combine
  • Spoon one large spoonful of turkey mixture into each lettuce wrap
