Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 cup bean sprouts (about 4 oz.)
2 carrots, shredded (about 1 cup)
24 large Boston or butter lettuce leaves
Soy sauce, optional

Preparation

1. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute longer. Stir in turkey and cook, stirring, until almost cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add broth and hoisin sauce. Cook, stirring and breaking up clumps of turkey, until turkey is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in teriyaki sauce, bean sprouts and carrots. (You should have about 6 cups of filling.)

2. Spoon about 1/4 cup of filling into center of each lettuce leaf. Serve with soy sauce, if desired.
