Ground Turkey Lettuce Cups - Ready in 20 minutes, Serves 4
via Ladies in Navy
1 lb lean ground turkey
3 carrots (shredded)
1 bunch green onions (diced)
20-30 fresh basil leaves (chopped)
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce (make sure to use gluten-free if you need to!)
1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
4 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil (could sub sesame or coconut oil)
Head of iceberg lettuce
Heat oil in skillet over medium heat and add the garlic. Saute until it smells yummy, then add meat to the pan with half of the soy sauce and sugar. Brown meat about 10 minutes. Once browned, drain the meat and return to pan. Add the remaining soy sauce and sugar, chopped basil, carrots and green onions. Stir together for about a minute and remove from heat. (You don't want to cook the veggies totally through.)
Serve with wedges of lettuce to scoop the turkey mixture into. We like ours with a drizzle of sriracha on top. Unless you're cutting out all carbs, make some brown rice (because you're healthy like that) to serve alongside.
*To appease my picky eaters who would not touch something with several types of veggie mixed in, I scoop out a portion for each of them prior to adding the veggies, then grate some raw carrot onto their plates to make myself feel better.
