Lettuce Wraps - my way

This is my 9 year old, who likes these so much,
he had to have them on his birthday...who says
kids don't like vegetables?
After we posted these wraps... I tried them out and found myself tweaking them a bit to accomodate my family
1.5 lb.     Ground Turkey
1             Red Pepper (diced small)
1/2 C      Snow Peas (diced small)
7             Water Chestnuts
(diced small - we used fresh, but canned are fine)
6              Scallions (green tops sliced mall)
6-7           Cloves Garlic (minced)
1TBLs     Ginger (minced)
1/2 C       Cilantro (stems and leaves -minced)
6 TBLs    Coconut Milk
1 TBLs    Chili Paste
2 TBLs    Braggs or Soy Sauce
1 TBLs    Sesame Oil
13 drops  Fish Sauce
1 TBLs    Honey
1/2 tsp     Cayene pepper (to taste)

1.oil pan with sesame oil and coconut oil - brown turkey (break down into small bits)

2.Once almost browned -add ginger and garlic to heat and bloom the flavors.

3. Add veggies to saute. The veggies need to be finely diced to make a simple filling. No large pieces.
Add everything else to create your sauce and keep the veggies from sticking/burning. Cook thoroghly.

Serve on lettuce (butter lettuce is nice) or our favorite is Napa Cabbage Leaves.

You can use other veggies or even a different protein, come up with your own version and tell us what you did.
