Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Wraps

This delightful, easy, and fast meal only takes 5 ingredients! *OK, it takes 7 but you probably have water and olive oil on hand, so they don't count. I'm a huge fan of lettuce wraps from P.F. Changs but the ones I tried before, take up a lot of time. This one is seriously done in 15 minutes. It was delectable and delightful.

Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Wraps (from Rachael Ray)


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 10 ounce bag  shredded carrots
  • 4 - 5 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup store-bought teriyaki sauce (get a thicker one, not one the consistency of soy sauce)
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, leaves separated


  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil over high heat. Add the turkey and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in the carrots, scallions and 1/4 cup water; lower the heat to medium-low. Cover loosely with foil and cook until the water is absorbed and the veggies are soft, about 4 minutes. Stir in the teriyaki sauce to taste and cook until heated through, about 4 minutes. Divide the mixture among the lettuce leaves, about 1/4 cup for each; roll up and serve immediately.
