A flavorful and spicy low-carb dinner!
With a paring knife, remove the core from the bottom side of the lettuce. Peel away the outer layer of lettuce and discard. Gently peel away the layers of lettuce, being careful not to tear them. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned. Add the onions and cook until soft, 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, jalapeño, and carrots. Cook for another 2 minutes. Mix in the Chinese five spice, red pepper flakes, and soy sauce. Cook until soy sauce has been absorbed, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Scoop meat mixture into the lettuce cups, doubling up lettuce cups if they are too thin. Garnish with green onions, cilantro leaves, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
