Asian Lettuce Wraps

Kim Biegacki


This is a super easy recipe to make and can be made in any pan. It is flavorful and packed with so many goodies. Garlic, ginger, onion with the main ingredient of ground turkey or chicken then mix in some amazing sauces and you have a healthy meal that is very hard not to go back for seconds. However, if you do it's not so much to worry about since it is so healthy. My family LOVES these wraps and it is an easy meal that can be put on the menu for once a month.

This recipe is another from my Ninja Cooking System cookbook with my additions and changes to lower the sodium amount.
