These Asian lettuce wraps are satisfying enough to be a light main course, or serve as great appetizers/sides for your next get-together. They’re just like the lettuce wraps you can get at PF Chang’s, only healthier and cheaper to make. Those are pretty bold claims, but we’re willing to put our money where our mouth is.
If ground turkey isn’t your thing, you can always swap it out for some chicken or sliced mushrooms for a veggie substitute. Serve with extra hot sauce for more spice, or use peanut sauce if you want to add some Southeast Asian-inspired flavors.
