My mother in law left us with some live butter lettuce over the weekend, and it proved to be perfect for making lettuce wraps with. This truly decadent lettuce holds it’s form to make the perfect flexible wrap to hold safe veggies and meat. In this particular recipe I utilized meat, vegetables, and a block of tofu as well.
1 Block Firm Tofu
4 oz. Ground turkey meat
2 green bell peppers-diced
2 green onions-diced
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup Tamari Sauce-or other gluten free soy sauce
3 tbs. chili paste
1 bundle live butter lettuce-washed and pulled from base
1 tbs. coconut oil
In a large sauce pan warm coconut oil over medium heat. Place ground turkey into pan and brown, cooking thoroughly. Once turkey has been thoroughly cooked, add tofu and cook for 8 minutes until tofu has a slightly brown tint as well.
Then, add chopped green peppers and green onion. Sprinkle in garlic salt, black pepper. Then add Gluten free Tamari sauce and chili paste. Stir thoroughly and continue to cook until vegetables are softened.
Serve by placing scoopfuls into butter lettuce.
Serves 4-6. Enjoy!
Make your day great,
