Thai Turkey & Wheat Berry Lettuce Wraps
1 lb ground turkey (I used Ferndale Market ground turkey from Cannon Falls, MN- turkeys raised without antibiotics + free ranging deliciousness!)
3/4 cup cooked wheat berries
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-1 inch knob of ginger, peeled and minced
2 Tablespoons tamari
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
1-2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 Tablespoon honey
2 tsp chili paste
salt & pepper to taste
Lettuce leaves- I used red leaf lettuce from Victous Farms in Silver Bay, MN.
Fresh basil and mint, chopped for garnish
Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and sauté a few more minutes until the onions begin to turn translucent.
Turn the heat down to low, and add the remaining ingredients, creating the sauce in the pan. Remove from heat.
Spoon the warm turkey & wheat berry salad into the lettuce cups. Serve with fresh lime wedges and a sprinkling of fresh basil and mint on top. Roll 'em up and eat them! Belly up!!
