    To serve, spoon 2 heaping tablespoons turkey mixture, 2 tablespoons carrots and 1 teaspoon peanuts onto each lettuce leaf; wrap around filling. Serve warm.

  • These can also be served with a store-bought spicy peanut sauce.
  • We recommend Bibb lettuce for this recipe because of its sturdiness.
