Stir-Fried Turkey in Lettuce Wraps

18 Sep

I’ve been trying to start eating a little healthier in an effort to lose some weight. I found this recipe in an issue of Everyday Food and tweaked it just a bit. Dave and I loved these and they are SO healthy for you.


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons of sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons stir-fry sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 heads of Boston lettuce, leaves separated.


  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, stir-fry sauce, and sugar. Set sauce aside
  2. Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat until hot.
  3. Add a bit of olive oil to the hot pan and swirl it around.
  4. Saute garlic, jalapeno, and carrot for about 30 seconds
  5. Add ground turkey to pan and cook for about 5 minutes, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon.
  6. Add sauce to pan and stir-fry until turkey is completely cooked.
  7. Serve turkey in lettuce wraps. Three of these makes a pretty substantial meal.
