Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I love going out for Asian food and lettuce wraps are a great option if you are trying to keep your meal a little lighter and healthier. However, heavy, MSG-filled sauces can ruin pretty much any attempt at keeping your meal clean. I’ve come up with a super simple and delicious recipe for turkey lettuce wraps with homemade hoisin sauce using only good, whole ingredients. This meal has become a staple in my weekly rotation at home because it is so quick, easy and delicious!
