What You Need to Make These Thai Lettuce Wraps
▢ 1 tablespoon peanut oil
▢ 1/2 cup diced white onion
▢ 1 pound lean ground turkey
▢ 2 teaspoons minced garlic in water

Here are a few things to keep in mind when making this recipe:
- Traditional lettuce wraps usually have mint, this does not! If you prefer mint, you can swap it for the cilantro.
- You can serve this with whatever lettuce leaves you can get your hands on.
- For a more peanut flavor, drizzle with a Spicy Peanut Sauce!
What To Serve These Wraps With
Serve these with a side of whole grains, like my Oven Baked Fried Rice for a healthy carb side dish, or my Instant Pot Pad Thai.
