Asian Turkey Lettuce Cups

Using ground turkey instead of ground beef or ground chuck makes your dishes healthier. However, ground turkey needs a little kick start to get those flavors going. This recipe showcases Asian flavors in fun to eat lettuce cups.

2 T. soy sauce
1 T. hoisin sauce
1/2 t. Sriracha 
1 T. vegetable oil
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 lb. ground turkey
Bibb or Boston lettuce leaves
julienned carrots
thinly sliced scallions
lime wedges

Combine soy sauce, hoisin sauce and Sriracha and set aside.

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and cook 2 minutes or until tender.

Add mushrooms and turkey. Cook 7 minutes or until turkey is cooked through and mushrooms are tender, stirring frequently to crumble turkey.

Stir in soy sauce mixture and cook 1 minute or until heated through. 

Arrange lettuce leaves on a platter and spoon turkey mixture into the lettuce leaves. Top with carrots, scallions, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
