Asian Lettuce Cups

  • 1 1/4 lb. fat-free ground turkey
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2/3 cup thinly sliced green onions (about 4)
  • 1 (8 oz) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 12 Boston lettuce leaves
  • 3 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbsp lower-sodium soy sauce (green top)
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. roasted red chili paste
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add turkey, garlic and ginger to the pan and cook for about 6 minutes or until turkey is browned.  Stir to crumble.  Combine turkey mixture, onions and chopped water chestnuts in a large bowl, stirring well, and set aside.
Meanwhile in a small bowl, whisk together hoisin, soy sauce, rice vinegar and roasted red chili paste and drizzle over the turkey mixture.  Toss to coat completely.  Add about 1/4 cup turkey mixture to each lettuce leaf, serve and enjoy!
