Ingredients

  • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 head butter lead lettuce ~12-14 leaves
  • 1 cup white rice cooked according to package
  • 2 green onions diced
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • 1/2 cup cabbage chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1-2 Roma tomatoes diced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For the sauce

  • 1 Tbsp. Sriracha
  • 3 Tbsp. Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp. Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Hoisin sauce

Instructions

  • In a frying pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the ground turkey and fresh garlic. Season with salt and pepper. While ground turkey is cooking, make sure you have started cooking your white rice (1 cup white rice to 2 cups water).
  • Next, mix all of the ingredients for the sauce together in a small bowl. Once the ground turkey is finished, pour 1/2 of the sauce mixture onto the meat and stir. Set the remaining sauce aside.
  • Clean each butter lettuce leaf, and pat dry with paper towel. At this point, rice should be ready and you can begin to assemble the tacos.
  • On each butter lettuce leaf first layer the rice, then the meat. Layer the remaining toppings to your liking. (Cabbage, tomato, green onion, and jalapeno). Feel free to also garnish with remaining sauce, it's SO good!
