This is a recipe my friend gave me. She's on a gluten free detox and said it was delicious.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 small onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄2 lb ground turkey
- 1 -2 tablespoon fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh ginger, sliced
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 cup peanuts, crushed
- 1 head lettuce
- heat onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent.
- add ground turkey and cook thoroughly.
- Add remaining ingredients and cook for 5 minutes.
- serve in a bowl and add a spoonful to the middle of a lettuce leaf.
- wrap, eat and enjoy.
I'm not sure I should rate this, as I changed it so much; but here goes. I doubled the recipe, but didn't use lime juice as I didn't have any. I had no fresh ginger, so I sprinkled a little ginger powder. Didn't use peanuts for the same reason. I used 1/8 teaspoon cayenne instead of the black pepper. I ended up adding 1/2 pound more ground turkey to tame the spices a bit. I added an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce to add some liquid, since I had no lime juice to add. I think it would be equally good with the right ingredients, but this was great! Everyone in the house actually liked it (very unusual). A good use for my highly productive lettuce garden - thanks!
these were very yummy! hit the spot for what I wanted for dinner this evening -- something fast, healthy, light, and yummy. I left out the peanuts for my personal taste and added a wee bit more garlic. they tasted similar to tacos, so I topped off my second one with fat free sour cream and light shredded cheese and wowsers was it good! I think next time I'll add a little more spice - maybe some tabasco or red pepper flakes or something for my preference. overall, this is a perfect recipe and a keeper in my house! thanks for sharing it.
This was ok. I left out the peanuts and the cilantro (personal taste). I thought the ginger was a little overpowering and the cumin too tacoy. I started out with the original recipe but ended up adding a bunch of other ingredients to get it to my liking...soy sauce, honey, and a little cayenne pepper. Good idea though.
