I am a sucker for Asian cuisine and I assume you are too since you are here. And these healthy asian lettuce wrap with turkey are a MUST try.
Often times Asian cuisine is heavy in sodium and rice; that you end up leaving the meal in a food coma. One way to prevent that is by using wholesome, fresh, and healthy ingredients. I created this recipe based on the PF. Chang chicken lettuce wrap but added my own healthy changes.
My boyfriend and I are addicted to this turkey lettuce wrap recipe. I think we eat it weekly…if not more. Which is why I knew that I had to share with you. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
