I honestly cannot believe I have never tried making these before! It is always my favorite thing to order in a restaurant, and they were so easy and so delicious to make! The secret ingredient was canned, diced , water chestnuts…. Who knew!??
1¼ lb. fat-free lean ground turkey
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
⅛ tsp. ground ginger
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 (8 oz) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and coarsely chopped
3 Tbsp hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp lower-sodium soy sauce (green top)
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp. roasted red chili paste
⅛ tsp. salt
12 Boston lettuce leaves
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 ¼ cup turkey mixture to each lettuce leaf, serve and enjoy!
