I love lettuce wrap appetizers at any restaurant that serves them.

The big problem with most of them is they are not the healthiest option.  So when I put together this recipe I was overjoyed because it’s super yummy & satisfying yet totally healthy & clean.

Total score!  I love when that happens

1 lb ground Turkey

6 Cups shredded veggies (Coleslaw mix, carrots, zucchini, squash, you get it… whatever you have on hand)

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil

1 Stalk Lemongrass, minced

2 Cloves Garlic, minced

1 Tablespoon Ginger, minded

2 Shallots, finely chopped

1/4 cup Coconut Nectars

1 Head Butter or Romaine Lettuce

  1.  In a pan, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil & cook the turkey until it’s cooked through & a little brown.  Remove from the pan & set aside.
  2. Add the veggies to the pan & cook until they are softened, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from pan & set the veggies aside once cooked.
  3. Add the remaining coconut oil to the pan & cook the lemongrass, garlic, ginger & shallots for about 3-4 minutes, until softened.
  4. Add the veggies & turkey back to the pan along with the coconut nectars
  5. Pop them in your lettuce for lettuce wraps or serve with rice.
  6. Enjoy!
