“This dish is very versatile. Try serving the filling on flour tortillas with hoisin sauce for a moo shoo type dish – or use it to top brown rice and veggies for rice bowls.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Turn off heat; stir in rice noodles. Cover, and allow noodles to soak until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Rinse with cold water. Drain well.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms in the hot oil until they are browned and softened, about 2 minutes. Remove the mushrooms from the pan. Reserve.
  3. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan. Cook and stir the turkey in the oil until it is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the green onions, water chestnuts, ginger, and garlic; continue to cook for 1 minute. Mix in the reserved mushrooms, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Simmer briefly to combine the flavors. Take the pan off the heat; stir in the rice vinegar, sesame oil, and orange zest.
  4. To assemble lettuce wraps, place a bit of turkey filling on each lettuce leaf. Top each with cooked noodles, and a sprinkle of bean sprouts, carrots, peanuts, and cilantro. Serve with sweet chili sauce for dipping.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Fun, easy to make, and oh so yummy! Didnt have green onion so I used recipe white onion and sauteed with turkey. I grated the ginger root and only needed about 1-2 teaspoons. I love the toppings - the carrots, sprouts , and peanuts are awesome on these wraps! I also used hoison sauce as a topping. This is a recipe my husband and I LOVED!



very easy to make and delish I changed it a little no mushrooms or water chesnuts and added red and yellow peppers.



Very tasty. I messed with the seasonings a bit as I like my food to be on the spicier side. Extra ginger and I added about 2 tbs sambal (chili paste) to the meat and veggie mix while cooking. Also served it with a dipping sauce made from hoisin with a little sambal and rice vinegar. Will definitely use this again.
