Ingredients

    1/2 C water
    1/2 C cooked white or brown rice-recipe calculated using white short grain sticky rice
    1 lb 93% lean ground turkey
    2 tsp grated fresh ginger
    1 large red bell pepper finely diced
    1/2 C reduced sodium chicken broth-use 99% fat free to reduce fat content
    2 tbsp hoisin sauce*
    1 tsp five spice powder**
    1/2 tsp kosher salt
    16 inner leaves from hearts of romaine-can use boston lettuce
    1 tbsp each cilantro and chives, chopped
    1/4 C grated carrot
    4 cloves garlic,grated
    1 tbsp tamari-dark soy sauce
    1 tsp each onion and garlic powder
    sriracha-optional-not included in nutritional information

Directions

1. Cook rice per package directions.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add turkey, garlic, and ginger; cook crumbling with wooden spoon, until the turkey is cooked through, about 6 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice, bell pepper, broth, hoisin sauce, five spice powder and salt; cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
3. To serve, spoon portions of turkey mixture into lettuce leaves-if using boston lettuce, if using hearts of romaine we just ate a bite of meat then ate a bite of lettuce. Top with herbs, carrot and sriracha if desired. Makes 4- 1 1/4 C servings.

*Hoisin is a spicy, sweet sauce made from soybeans, chiles, garlic, and spices. Will keep in frige for at least a year.

** Often a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. Find in supermarket spice section.

    So glad you enjoyed! Yeah I found it needed some kinda "sauce" as well and I like foods with a bite so that's where the sriracha came in for me. Do you mind sharing what Asian dipping sauce you used?
