Gluten Free Spicy Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps

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.
