Recipe: Turkey Lettuce Cups

Last night [3.2.15], I wanted to try something different for dinner so I took a stab at lettuce cups, but not the traditional chicken Asian style ones, I went with a healthier turkey version.  I browsed online to see how other people season the turkey part, but if you’ve read my other recipes, you would know by now I’m a lazy cook.  I like to keep my ingredients simple.

K.I.S.S. — Keep it simple stupid 😛


◊ Ground turkey (two fistful or so)
◊ Lettuce
◊ Green bell pepper (half of one)
◊ White mushroom (half of one)
◊ Salt, pepper, soy sauce (just a dash of each, flavor to taste)


  1. Wash and chop the bell pepper and mushroom into small bits.  Wash the lettuce too.
  2. Oil pan on high heat. Saute the chopped bell pepper and mushroom with salt, pepper, and soy sauce.
  3. Remove from pan.  Oil.  Cook the ground turkey.  Add salt & pepper.  When it’s about done, add the vegetables back in to mix together.
  4. It’s done and ready to be cupped in the lettuce to eat!

Simple, right?  My way obviously isn’t going to be the best you’ve ever had due to flavoring, but I thought it was a pretty good place to start.
