Lettuce leaves add refreshing crunch to a Thai-seasoned filling. They go from start to finish in 30 minutes.

Ingredients

1 1/4
lb ground turkey
1/4
cup chopped green onions (4 medium)
3
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1
tablespoon chopped fresh mint
2
tablespoons fresh lime juice
2
tablespoons fish sauce
3
tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2
teaspoons garlic and red chile paste
1
teaspoon sugar
1/2
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1
cup shredded carrots
1/3
cup chopped salted peanuts
12
medium Bibb lettuce leaves, rinsed, patted dry with paper towel

Directions

  • 1 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook turkey over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain and return to skillet. Stir in green onions, cilantro, mint, lime juice, fish sauce, peanut butter, chile paste, sugar and red pepper flakes. Cook 3 to 4 minutes longer or until hot.
  • 2 To serve, spoon 2 heaping tablespoons turkey mixture, 2 tablespoons carrots and 1 teaspoon peanuts onto each lettuce leaf; wrap around filling. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

These can also be served with a store-bought spicy peanut sauce.

We recommend Bibb lettuce for this recipe because of its sturdiness.
