These Spicy Turkey Lettuce Wraps are one of our favorite light/low carb meals.  You could use ground chicken or beef in this recipe, but I especially love how the turkey is kind of a “blank slate” and really absorbs all of the Asian flavors. (Plus Wal-Mart had a good deal on a 3lb package of ground turkey, lol.)

We have another dish we really like made with cabbage, turkey and Asian spices.  I would love to get it made soon and share it with you as well.  I forgot to buy cabbage, but if I tell my hubby it’s on the menu I know he will go to the store for me!

I had to coax the kids into trying these lettuce wraps, but once they gave it a taste, it got a thumbs up from both.

Since these lettuce wraps are basically just lettuce and meat, I needed an additional side dish to help round out the meal.  While on my last shopping trip to Walmart, I picked up a couple bags of the Birds Eye® Protein Blends.  They come in 4 flavors: Italian, Southwest, California and Asian Style.  I used the Asian Style Protein Blends today since it was the perfect complement to this meal.

What’s so handy about these Protein Blends, is they make it so easy to incorporate more varieties of vegetables into our diet.  (Plus they cook in the microwave in about 4 to 5 minutes- can’t beat that.)
