    Again - way too high in sodium. I've had these at PF Changs, but that was before (or maybe why) I had to start taking 3 meds to control my blood pressure! - 11/4/09

    I do understand that this is still very high in sodium, but I could only imagine what the orginal at PF Chang's would be. The soy sauce is hte lower sodium and you could remove the teriyaki sauce. Any asian flavored lower sodium alternative would work fine here - everything else is veggies!!! :-)

    This was very good! It's spicy (and we like spicy), so I'll cut the red pepper flakes in half next time. I also doubled the chopped pepper, carrots and mushrooms. Good stuff! - 4/19/12

    These were really yummy...but, they were VERY spicy.(Even made my hubby's eyes water!) A previous review indicated they were on the spicy side and I agree. Good, but hot. If you aren't a spicy food lover, better reduce (or omit) the red pepper. - 5/14/10

    Very good however it was too spicy for me. Next time I'm going to just use 1 tsp of red pepper flakes (eyes were watering the entire time I ate this). Otherwise yum! - 1/6/10

  • I loved it! Hubby likes it and no complaints from the kiddos = winner. - 4/16/13

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • These were pretty good, my 9yr old who doesn't like things too spicy LOVED these! I only did 1/2t of pepper flakes and added both garlic and sesame oil. Will reduce the ginger a little and will only do 1/4t of pepper flakes next time. Definitely something we will do again! - 4/5/13

  • I love spicy food but do not add more that 1-1.5 tsp of red pepper! I'm not sure how you could eat it. Such an amazing recipe!!! - 3/6/13

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Made this and it was yummy! I used romaine lettuce and made more of a boat than a wrap. And I maybe used a bit too much red pepper but this recipe is definite keeper! - 1/3/13

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Just made this! We did 1 tsp of the red pepper flakes, cooked the turkey in some minced garlic and added cucumber and bean sprouts on top! YUM! - 10/6/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Agree that it is really, really spicy, but the flavor is great! Made it with diced chicken. Consider bibb lettuce and low sodium teriyaki. - 9/11/12

  • There is nothing soothing about this recipe. I couldn't get past the heat to find out if the flavor was good or not. I drank water for hours to stop the burning. - 5/4/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Love this!!! Will be a weekly rotation. I used one tsp of crushed red pepper and it was a sophisticated flavor of savory and sweet. Next time I will be adding even more veggies. I Googled how to separate lettuce leaves and some people use Romaine. Delish! - 2/26/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Amazing!! incredibly filling and very flavorful!!! Will make again,, however i will use much less red pepper. I like spicey food and that 1 tablespoon was too hot for me. I think I will go with a teaspoon next time. But I was pleased!!! - 1/31/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • So yummy! I used chicken breasts, diced, instead of ground turkey because I didn't have any on hand. I also added celery, and reduced the pepper flakes to 1tsp, although it was still a little too spicy. Will be making again this week - with 1/2tsp red pepper flakes! YUMMY! TY!! - 1/17/12

  • I made these for the first time for my sister and her friend...no pressure right ;) They LOVED them...My son even ate all of his and asked for more. This is amazing since he calls anything green "salad" while sticking out his tongue. He loved that I called them tacos. Better than P.F. Changs!! - 9/21/11

  • I used 2 tsp ground red pepper after having discovered my red pepper flakes were expired. It was pretty spicy, so I'd probably just do 1/2 Tbsp next time. Great recipe! Yes it's high in sodium but most Asian recipes are so don't eat it everyday and you'll be fine. - 6/30/11

  • These were wonderful. It was a great way to hide vegetables from my nine year old. He ate them and enjoyed them. I did not add the hot red pepper, but had it out for adults to use. The kids didn't complain about them being hot. - 2/24/11

  • Way too high in sodium!

    If I make this, I'll probably use half the amount of soy sauce and teriyaki sauce, omit the honey, then add a few tablespoons of orange juice (for the sweetness that'd be missing from getting rid of the honey, and to make the reduced amount of soy and teriyaki go farther) - 11/4/09
