    • Ingredients for Wraps:
    • Cooking spray
    • 1 pound 99% fat-free ground turkey breast
    • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, see shopping tip
    • 1 tablespoon ginger (from a jar) or fresh grated ginger root, see shopping
    • ½ cup unsweetened apple juice
    • 5 cups shredded cabbage
    • 1½ cups shredded carrots
    • 14 leaves Boston lettuce (about 1½ heads) washed, dried and leaves separated, see shopping tip
    • Ingredients for Toppings:
    • ½ cup chopped scallions
    • ⅓ cup Asian plum sauce (optional), see shopping tip


    1. Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Brown ground turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up the pieces. When cooked and cool enough to handle, break up turkey pieces until minced.
    2. Stir in hoisin sauce, ginger, apple juice, cabbage and carrots; cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly, until cabbage is crisp-tender.
    3. To assemble each lettuce wrap: Spoon ⅓ cup of turkey filling onto 1 lettuce leaf. Add a little scallions on top of each. If desired, drizzle 1 teaspoon plum sauce over the top.
    4. Shopping Tips
-Most supermarkets sell in the produce section, plastic containers of Boston lettuce leaves. You’ll use about 1½ heads washed and dried. You need a total of 14 leaves for this recipe.
    5. Hoisin sauce can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket.
    6. Plum sauce can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket. It’s totally optional to use and if you leave it out, these wraps still taste amazing!
