FABULOUS Lettuce Wraps

This recipe came from my neighbor and I must say it is a regular at our house. It's kind of a lot of chopping, but if you have a Pampered Chef chopper, it's quite quick to do.

1/2 c finely chopped carrots
1/2 c water

cook carrots in water until tender, then drain. In the same large skillet (or wok) add:

1 T sesame oil
1 20oz pkg ground turkey
1 c shitake mushrooms chopped (I have used all kinds if you can't find shitake)
1 8 oz can water chestnuts chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
2 T grated fresh ginger
1/3 c your favorite teriyaki sauce
2 T peanut butter (optional: I like it better without)
1 T rice vinegar
1/4 c hoisin sauce
1/2 c green onion chopped

Add ground turkey, garlic, ginger, and chopped mushrooms to cooked carrots. Cook meat until no longer pink. Add water chestnuts and everything else (except green onion) and cook on med-hi until cooked warmed through 10-20 min. Add green onion at the end. Serve over rice or in iceberg or butter lettuce cups. ALMOST as good as PF Changs. We love this recipe, so give it a try.
