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!
