Money well spent and more $ for presents for the loved ones.

Speaking of loved ones, they are going to love this recipe.
Healthy and you can serve it as an appetizer or main course dish.
Simple to make with only a couple of ingredients.

Turkey Lettuce Wraps


1 iceberg lettuce cut in 1/2

1lb. of ground turkey

8 Tbsp. of Soy Sauce

1/4 cup of Hoisin Sauce

1 green onion or scallion onion finely chopped

1/4 cup of  unsalted peanuts

3 Tbsp. of olive oil

1 Tbsp. crushed garlic

1/2 Tsp. of Red Pepper Flakes

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. 
Place in the ground turkey and cook until lightly browned.
Remove excess water and grease from the browned turkey using a colander.
Return turkey to skillet, add hoisin sauce, soy sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
Mix well over medium heat.
Add chopped onions and peanuts.

With the lettuce cut in 1/2, use some of the lettuce to make cups and fill the turkey filling in the middle.

Light, healthy and serves 3 - 4 people.
