Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey (preferably lean)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 cup diced onions

  • 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (use any color you like)

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (or freshly grated if you prefer)

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, adjust to your taste)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce (or any other sturdy lettuce variety)


For the sauce:


  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (adjust to your spice preference)

  • 1/2 teaspoon erythritol (or any sugar substitute of your choice)

Directions

  1. Start by washing the lettuce leaves and pat them dry. Set them aside while you prepare the filling.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

  3. Add diced onions and bell peppers to the skillet and cook until they become slightly tender, about 3-4 minutes.

  4. Push the veggies to one side of the skillet, add the ground turkey to the other side, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks. Cook until the turkey is browned and cooked through.

  5. In a small bowl, mix the sauce ingredients: soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, and erythritol. Stir until the erythritol is dissolved.

  6. Pour the sauce over the cooked ground turkey and veggies. Add ground ginger and red pepper flakes (if using). Stir everything together and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to let the flavors meld.

  7. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.

  8. To serve, spoon the ground turkey mixture onto the lettuce leaves, creating individual wraps.
