Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Continuing with my healthy theme, here is a recipe for Turkey Lettuce Wraps/Cups, whatever you want to call them. It’s using ground turkey instead of ground chicken (Recipe adapted from Cooking Light).

 

I think the artichoke hearts and all the veggies make this recipe special and super yummy and I love that this is so light and fresh tasting! I added bell peppers (of course!) and did not use the mozzarella cheese simply because I don’t think it’s needed for this one (see Cooking Light recipe if you want to add the cheese).

 

Hope you give this one a try and enjoy!!
