How to Make Lettuce Wraps


  • 1Shortcuts! Available in freezer section: Frozen mirepoix w/ the onion, celery, & (usually) green peppers. I toss in the whole bag (@ 2-cups).
    Also, Morningstar crumbles 'ground beef' substitute is basically seasoned diced mushrooms. If you sub this, add them last & reduce cooking time to just reheat the Morningstar product.
  • 2If going from scratch, all the dicing can be done up to 8 hours ahead; I do the peppers, celery, & onion together & then the mushrooms alone in a large food processor.
  • 3Cook onion, celery, & peppers to your taste preference. Some families prefer these really cooked down, others want them still crunchy. Add mushrooms & saute to the level of tenderness you enjoy. No difference in success of recipe.
  • 4Push above ingredients to sides of pan [or remove from pan/heat] until ground turkey (+) garlic, ginger, & dry mustard is well done.
  • 5Blend all ingredients in pan, add diced water chesnuts and General Tsao sauce. Stir until warm throughout.
  • 6Scoop into iceberg lettuce leaves or serve over bed of chopped romaine
