Turkey Lettuce Wraps

This is one way to use up some turkey leftovers.  This recipe calls for ground turkey, but you could just as easily substitute chopped, cooked turkey!

 Turkey Lettuce Wraps




  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup carrot, shredded
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
  • 8 large iceberg lettuce leaves, washed, separated, drained and chilled



In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add ground turkey and ginger and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Stir in hoisin sauce and stir while cooking. Add carrots and bell pepper and sauté about 2 minutes. (If using leftovers, skip the ground turkey and add the cooked turkey at the end and stir until heated through)

Spoon hot turkey mixture onto each lettuce leaf, sprinkle with cucumber and scallions. Wrap lettuce around filling and serve.
