Lettuce Wraps

It's time for another recipe! These lettuce wraps are SO crazy good that my husband and I fought over the last wrap.  There are only 1,000 calories in the entire dish and most of those calories are from the lean protein, so eat up!

1 head of lettuce, Boston Bibb or butter lettuce if you can find it 
1 lb ground turkey
1 large white onion, chopped
4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
2 tsp ginger powder (or minced pickled ginger if you have it)
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
Asian chile pepper (if you want it spicy, I did not)
1 8 oz can water chestnuts, drained & chopped
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
1 large carrot, shredded
4 tsp Asian sesame oil

1. Rinse lettuce, be careful to keep leaves whole
2. Brown the ground turkey, set aside on a separate plate with a paper towel and pat dry
3. Cook the onion in the same pan, then add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar and chile pepper.
4. After onion softens slightly, add the water chestnuts, green onions, carrots, sesame oil.
5. Stir in the turkey meat.

You're done! Wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito and enjoy!
