Tasty Lettuce Wraps

A quick and easy, gluten free meal that you can make mid-week for family or for easy entertaining. Add whatever veggies you want ~ cucumbers, carrots, squash ~ just dice small so the veggies can easily fit inside the lettuce wrap. Bibb lettuce holds up best but I have used red leaf in a pinch. These are a favorite to take on picnics and sundowners ;) Makes 4 main course servings or 8 appetizer portions.

Prep
Cook
Serves 8people
Ingredients
1
tsp sesame oil
1/2
diced onion
1
tbsp roasted garlic minced (raw garlic works too)
1
lb of ground hormone-free turkey meat (or fav meat substitute)
2
tbsp creamy peanut butter (or fav nut butter)
4
tsp Coconut amino garlic sauce
2
tbsp Coconut amino acids
1
tsp grated fresh ginger
1
tsp Sriracha (or fav hot chile sauce)
2
cups of diced organic broccoli slaw with carrots
1/2
cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1/3
cup water (if needed)
8
Bibb lettuce leaves and cilantro to serve
Directions
1.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sesame oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onions; sauté 1 minute and then add garlic and stir. Add ground meat; sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2.
Add soy sauce, ginger, coconut aminos, garlic sauce, and Sriracha; sauté 1 minute. Add peanut butter and stir to combine. You can add water at this time but the veggies will release some water so I find I usually don’t need any (depends how saucy you like your lettuce wraps).
3.
Stir in broccoli slaw and cook 1-2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup cilantro and stir.
4.
To serve, spoon 1/4 cup meat mixture into each lettuce leaf. Spoon some sauce in if you prefer more. Sprinkle with cilantro. Enjoy!
