Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Turkey Lettuce Wraps
Spices, sauces, marinade, really flavors of any kind.  I wouldn’t eat any of them.I know, I know.  It’s practically un-American to not eat BBQ, especially this time of year.  Crazy, right?

Well, luckily my palate has expanded quite a bit in the last couple years – months even!   Can I tell you a secret?  Easter this year was the first time I’d eaten ribs,  BBQ ribs no less!  And maybe a month ago was the first time I’d ever eaten BBQ chicken, at 26 years old.  But don’t worry, I’m getting there.

So when I went to the store and bought Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (a substitute for soy sauce that is non-GMO, no preservatives or added salt, etc.), you could say it was a big day.  I wanted to make an Asian type lettuce wrap but knew the flavor wouldn’t be right without some sort of sauce or added flavor.  Granted, Liquid Aminos can still be relatively high in the naturally occurring sodium of the soybeans so just be aware of how much you’re adding!


1 lb. ground turkey, or chicken (16 oz)

1 whole carrot, diced

1 celery stalk, diced

1 can sliced water chestnuts

1 tsp. garlic

2 tsp. dried cilantro

2 tbs. rice vinegar

Bragg’s liquid aminos to taste*

Boston Bibb or Butter lettuce

*I recommend buying the spray bottle so you have more control over how much you are adding.  I find it is easier to spritz less than it is to pour.


Wash lettuce leaves and set aside.  Dice carrots, celery and water chestnuts if desired.

Brown turkey over medium heat, add veggies and remaining ingredients.  Add liquid aminos to taste.

And there you have it!  Serve mixture with lettuce.

Who knew flavor could be so good?  Oh yeah, everyone else in the world.
