Ingredients

    3 Carrots, finely diced
    1 cup Water
    20 oz. Ground Turkey (I use breast meat)
    5 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
    1 Tbsp ginger root, finely chopped
    2 cups Shiitake Mushrooms, chopped (about 8...they shrink)
    2-8oz. cans of Water Chestnuts, chopped
    1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce
    3 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
    3 Tbsp creamy Peanut Butter
    1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
    1 bundle Green Onions, sliced thin
    Iceberg Lettuce - outer leaves

Directions

Boil the carrots in the water in a non-stick pan on high heat for 3-5 minutes, watching all the time, until all the water is absorbed. Remove and set aside.

Heat sesame oil in a non-stick fry pan. Saute garlic and ginger, then add ground turkey. Brown the turkey on medium heat til no longer pink -- about 5 minutes.

Add all remaining ingredients except the green onion. Cook on med-high heat for 4 minutes. Add the green onion and cook one minute more.

Serve with iceberg lettuce leaves and brown rice. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Makes wonderful leftovers the next day too!
