Lettuce Wraps (Minced Turkey,Tomatoes and Peppers): Inspired By Daisy!

While promoting The Get Trimmer Challenge last week, I posted this picture on Instagram:
Not up to 10 minutes after posting it, I got one recipe request and a few questions on what was in it. So I thought, “Yay! A recipe blog post, my blog needs one!”. Lettuce wraps are a great way of totally eliminating bread (wraps) from a meal. This is a low carb and high protein meal and can be breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I was feeling creative and decided to do an InstaVideo of the recipe. Why did Instagram CRASH on me??? Thankfully, a copy of the video was saved on my phone and because I didn’t want to throw away my hard work, I uploaded it on YouTube:
Ha! It’s not the usual quality of my videos but it does the job, right?

Ingredients
500g Turkey Mince
400g chopped tomatoes (Better option – Fresh tomatoes, chopped)
Lettuce (I used romaine, but any should do)
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
1/2 Red Onion
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
Salt
Mixed Herbs and Spices

  1. Wash and chop up onions and peppers.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a pan (preferably a wok).
  3. Fry onions until they’re lightly browned.
  4. Add turkey mince, cook until the meat isn’t pink. keep turning in the pan to cook evenly. Season with (1/2 tsp) salt. This should take no more than 5 minutes.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes and season with mixed herbs and spices, and two pinches of salt.
  6. Immediately add the peppers. Stir contents for 30 seconds, cover and leave to simmer for a minimum of ten minutes.
  7. Wash the romaine lettuce and remove the leaves (for the wraps). A tip here is too use the bigger (outer) leaves. I made 4 wraps, so I used 8 leaves.

  8. Add 2-3 heaped tablespoons of mince to each wrap and enjoy :)
Shout out to Daisy for the inspiration! I usually make my lettuce wraps with eggs, sliced meat (chicken, beef) or fish.
