Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Ground Turkey is one of my favorite healthy proteins. It is very affordable and versatile, but can be a little bland at times.

This recipe infuses SO much flavor and is incredibly easy to make.

1lb Ground Turkey
Peanut Butter
Soy Sauce
Ginger
Garlic Powder
Chili Powder

Butter Lettuce
Sweet Peppers
Couscous (optional)

Directions:

Brown turkey in a saute pan. Season with salt, ginger, garlic powder and chili powder (I wish I had measurements for you, but I just sprinkle it on and taste as I go). Once browned, stir in a few splashes of soy sauce and 1 Tbs of peanut butter. Remove meat from pan and add thinly sliced sweet peppers. Saute and season with same salt, ginger, garlic powder and chili powder combination. While the peppers are cooking, prepare the couscous according to the boxed directions, and remove the leaves from the butter lettuce.

Layer couscous, peppers and meat in the lettuce ‘boats’. Top with sesame seed if you want to get fancy – or if you are lazy (like I am most of the time) you can just chop the lettuce and make it a ‘salad’ of sorts. Also, for those of us who are paleo or gluten free – leave out the couscous (could substitute quinoa or brown rice as well!). This dinner literally took me 20 minutes to cook and was DELICIOUS!
