La-La-La Lettuce Wraps!

Anything wrapped in lettuce can become scrumptious. Enough said, let’s cook!

1 lb. ground turkey breast, lean

1 red onion

1 carrot

1/4 tsp of each – lemon pepper, cinnamon, cloves, cumin

1/2 tsp paprika

3 cloves garlic

1 inch piece of fresh ginger

2 tsp tamari soy sauce

3 tsp rice vinegar

2 tsp black bean sauce

1 tsp agave

** for garnish **

1/2 tsp sesame seeds

head of lettuce

sriracha

rice

shredded cabbage and carrots

Warm some oil in a large pan on medium heat. In a food processor, blend onion and carrot. Add to a pan and saute.

After a few minutes, add the turkey.

Toss in lemon pepper, cinnamon, cloves, cumin & paprika.

Should take maybe 10 min to cook. Don’t waste any time, make the sauce pronto! Place garlic, ginger, soy sauce, black bean sauce, rice vinegar and agave in a food processor. Blend until saucy. Here is where I had to do a pan change so just start with one big pan and save yourself the trouble. Pour over cooked meat.

Let the ingredients simmer together until warm.

Serve in a piece of lettuce with rice, hot sauce and sesame seeds. Shove into your pie-hole and delight in the taste of these flavors.
