  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 8 medium green onions, sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh bean sprouts
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 12 medium iceberg or Bibb lettuce leaves, rinsed, patted dry with paper towel


  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook turkey over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until no longer pink; drain and return to skillet. Stir in onions, carrots, bell pepper, gingerroot and garlic. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • 2
    Add the bean sprouts, soy sauce and brown sugar. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors.
  • 3
    To serve, spoon turkey mixture onto each lettuce leaf; wrap around filling. Serve warm.

  • Get Spicy! For a touch of Thai Peanut flavor, add a teaspoon of peanut butter and a teaspoon of spicy Thai chili sauce after adding the brown sugar. Serve your wraps sprinkled with chopped peanuts.
  • These wraps are equally delicious when served in Endive boats and Butter Lettuce leaves.
