post #14 - Skinny Lettuce Wraps

17 June 2013

Skinny Lettuce Wraps!

When summer rolls around, we are always looking for recipes that are light, cheap, and easy. This recipe is definitely light and cheap, and the hardest part is eating it fast enough. We started making this last year, and it has become a staple in our house. Best of all - it's a low-fat recipe that was apparently featured on The Biggest Loser! (Original recipe found here) You can definitely add other veggies to this recipe, but here are the basics. 
Disclaimer -- this is messy!!

Skinny Lettuce Wraps
1 lb. ground turkey or ground chicken
2 tablespoons low-fat peanut butter
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce
1 can water chestnuts, drained
1/2 chopped onion
1 head of lettuce washed & divided into large pieces for wrapping
1. Brown ground meat until fully cooked. Drain any fat.
2. Add peanut butter, soy sauce, teriyaki, onions, and water chestnuts. Mix until combined. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes.
3. Spoon meat into lettuce and wrap. Take a bite and try not to spill! Enjoy!
