    These are amazing. I have to make a double recipe every time I make them. They are eaten so quickly and raved about. My 2 year old LOVES them too.

    OMIGOSH. If you like hoisin and you like lettuce wraps, you will totally LOVE this recipe! My husband only wanted to know why there wasn't enough left over to take out on the boat tomorrow! Because we ate it all!. Son loved too, Made as described and loved!

    This is wonderful!!! My husband, who hates mushrooms and water chestnuts, loves this! I add a 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes for some heat, and a Tbsp. or so cilantro. I serve it with Bibb lettuce (it rolls up easier) and crushed peanuts. Everyone asks for the recipe. The best!

    This is a must try for anyone that wants a light dinner. I've made this 2x already for my Hubby. He even takes it to work and his "manly" work buddies have commented on how good it smells. The texture of this recipe plus the flavor is very unique but in a good way. I do add 1/4 cup more veggies to make it hardier. The prepping takes the most time so I do this a day ahead and have it ready in the fridge to throw together.

    Great dish, we all ate it up. I eat low carb and this fits the bill nicely. I don't think the teriaky sauce is needed, makes it too sweet. I added extra heat with thai curry paste and everyone ate until stuffed! This is on my list of every week meals.

    Loved this recipe and everyone else who tried it did too! Only changes I made were adding slivered almonds to it at the end for some crunch, also added crispy rice noodles (the kind that you buy in a can) that also add some crunch.

    This was very good, but I would guess it took closer to 45 minutes than the 30 stated in the recipe. Served with potstickers and edamame. I'll probably make this again.

    Good N Healthy! I doubled the turkey and added red peppers & snap peas. Served it on Nappa cabbage which holds together pretty well. Also added some Sriracha for some kick. Omitted the Teriyaki to keep the sodium low and I can't even tell its gone. Topped with peanuts. If you like this one try the Asian Turkey Cabbage Cups also found on CL. Same concept with a few twists. Think I like that one better but they are both good.

    a family favorite!! i've modified the recipe slightly -- doubled the meat, and/or added chopped cooked shrimp. reduced peanut butter to 2 tblsp. but a great and easy recipe that is quick and delicious!

    Made these tonight and I'm super-impressed. Great flavor in the turkey and the veggies not only make it good for me but stretches the meal too! Don't be intimidated if you don't have all of the ingredients. I didn't have hoison so I used a little extra Trader Joe's Soyaki. Delicious. I also served it with sriracha sauce and made this sauce to go with: http://www.justapinch.com/recipe/barbara-oseland/asian-turkey-lettuce-wraps/quick-easy-healthy-green-salad#.UG-Q5VbE6WE.pinterest Excellent!
