Spicy Turkey-Spinach Lettuce Wraps

I just can't get enough of lettuce wraps lately!!! They are so fast and easy to make, fun to eat and delish!!! You can also add mushrooms, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, . . . whatever you have on hand that you think will be tasty to the dish!
Spicy Turkey-Spinach Lettuce Wraps
Recipe by: Emily
1 lb Ground Turkey
2 tsp Sesame Oil
2 tsp Canola Oil
1-2 tsp Garlic Chili Paste
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
3 tsp Ginger, minced
4 Green Onions, Chopped
2 cups Baby Spinach
1/2 cup Carrots, shredded or minced
1-2 Tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
2 tsp Rice Wine Vinegar

1. Heat the sesame and canola oil in a wok over medium high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, garlic chili paste, carrots and green onions to the wok. Cook for 1 minute, add the ground turkey. Cook until the turkey is no longer pink. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, and spinach. Toss together, cook for 1 more minute and remove from heat. Serve turkey mixture with red lettuce leaves as wraps and top with spicy/sweet soy sauce and peanuts. Enjoy!

To make wraps scoop about 1 tablespoon of filling into a lettuce leaf, drizzle a little spicy sweet soy sauce over the turkey and sprinkle with chopped peanuts, fold lettuce over meat and eat!
