  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 can pre-diced water chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup diced white mushrooms
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 3 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 heads butter head lettuce, rinsed


  • Begin by dicing red bell pepper, mushrooms, and water chestnuts (unless you bought pre-diced). ┬áSet aside.
  • Mince garlic, and then in a small bowl, whisk garlic, soy sauce, salt, and hoisin sauce. Set aside.
  • Add sesame oil to a large skillet or wok set over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey and cook for 5 minutes, using a spatula to crumble the meat. Add the mushrooms, and red bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the turkey is no longer pink and the mushrooms have begun to soften.
  • Add the sauce mixture to the pan and stir to coat all ingredients. Cook for 3 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken slightly. Add water chestnuts, and give the whole pan one final stir. Remove from heat.
  • To serve: Divide lettuce leaves among plates. Spoon a small amount of the filling into each lettuce leaf and fold to eat.
