2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large onion
1 lb. lean ground turkey breast
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
A 12 oz. bag of broccoli slaw (I get mine from Trader Joe's)
An 8oz. can of water chestnuts (drained)
1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce (I used Mr. Yoshida's which we buy at Costco - it's great!)
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 head of butter or iceberg lettuce
1. Finely chop your onion and sautée with olive oil in large pan/wok over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes until softened. (While this is cooking you can drain & chop up your water chestnuts & put aside).
2. Add ground turkey, salt, pepper & garlic powder. Continue cooking & stirring until turkey is browned, crumbled & cooked-through .
3. When turkey is cooked, stir in your broccoli slaw, water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce* & sesame oil. Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
4. Spoon into crisp leaves of lettuce & enjoy!
*Note: This recipe calls for 1/2 a cup of teriyaki sauce. My husband thought they were perfect but they were a little sweet for me so next time I'll probably use 1/4 of a cup and serve the rest on the side to be added as people please.
