Hoisin Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I'm married to a marathon runner, which means dinners need to be healthy but flavor-packed. These low-carb wraps are quick and easy. He loves the health aspect, I love the taste! —Melissa Pelkey Hass, Waleska, Georgia

    Just enjoyed the first results of the delicious recipe. Yes, the veggie prep is a little more time consuming but worth the effort for a healthy dish. I added finely chopped Chinese Cabbage. Brightly colored vegetables make for a pretty presentation. Always looking for another way to use ground turkey since I don't eat red meat and this is a winner in my book. Flavorful, healthy, low carb and tasty. Thank you Melissa!!!

    Just ok. It took way more than 30 minutes as claimed. Taste really wasn't worth all the fuss in prep work.
