JillyBee's Famous Lettuce Wraps

Introduction

My famous lettuce wraps are best served with brown rice. I have been making this recipe for years and it is often requested at my house. Trust me, it is delicious. *The sodium content is lower with low sodium tamari (couldn't find the option). My famous lettuce wraps are best served with brown rice.

Ingredients

    Ground Turkey -1 container
    1/4 cup low sodium tamari (or soy sauce)
    2 tblspns balsamic vinegar
    a handful of chopped scallion
    1/2 cup shredded cabbage
    iceburg lettuce

Directions

I usually use a half of a small head of cabbage. Shred the cabbage and place in a microwave safe bowl with a tbspns water. Microwave for 9 minutes until soft and cooked.

In a fry pan, use Pam or extra-virgin olive oil and cook the ground turkey under med-med high heat until cooked through (no pink). Add the tamari and balsamic vinegar, mix and continue to cook 1 minute. Add the cabbage, mix well and simmer 5 to 10 minutes, stirring regularly.

Right before taking it away from heat, add the scallion.
Cut the core of the iceburg lettuce and make "wraps" with each leaf. Other lettuce varieties may be used but I do prefer the crunch of the iceburg.

I serve the ground turkey mixture in a bowl, take a piece of lettuce, place a small amount of turkey mixture on, wrap it up and enjoy! Serve with brown rice.
