Food / From My Table

From My Table- Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps were a HIT for me in college. I loved them and sometimes miss them.

I’ve made them a few times since. These photos show it made with ground beef, but I especially like ground turkey too.

Plus I feel super healthy eating a lettuce taco. It’s awesome.

The fresh ginger is the key here. I was always afraid of the weird looking root. But it was super cheap and easy! Just peel and use a box grater. I store mine in the freezer. A lot goes a long way! These have a ton of flavor from ginger, soy sauce and a bit of soyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s.
