Oriental Lettuce Wraps

Craving PF Changs?  Well crave no longer, actually you may have to continue craving for 15 minutes put that's it because that's how long it takes to make these delicious lettuce wraps. If your trying a "Meatless Monday" or your Vegan or Vegetarian TVP or Tempeh makes a great substitute for the Turkey Burger. 
Lightly brown 4 oz. turkey burger (use cooking spray, no oil)
Add ½ c chopped celery ½ c chopped onion & ½ can water chestnuts. Continue cooking over low heat
Add in 1/3 c precooked rice
Season w/ soy sauce, ginger, and garlic
Spoon into 5 large lettuce leaves and eat!
Serves 1 – 5 lettuce leaves per person

270 calories per serving
Or… 1 lettuce leaf with 1/3 c filling = 52 calories
*TIP* Use reduced sodium soy sauce and be sparing with it. For good flavor with less sodium, add more ginger, garlic and even a little lemon juice.


  1. I've actually never had PF Chang's but this sounds yummy, and I'm sure it's a whole lot healthier!

  2. i love lettuce wraps. Lately we've been using a lot of collard greens instead. Delicious!
