Do you love PF Chang’s lettuce wraps as much as we do? So good, right? Well, you can make an equally delicious but healthier version at home and it only takes 30 minutes start to finish.
These ground turkey lettuce wraps are what I make when we get a craving for PF Chang’s. It has all of those great Asian flavors like ginger, soy sauce and green onions, but a lot healthier. (And they’re healthier than tacos because the lettuce is, well, lettuce!)

How to Make the Ground Turkey Filling
- Olive oil
- Sliced green onions
- Diced yellow pepper
- Ground ginger or grated fresh ginger
- Ground turkey
- Chili powder
- Low-sodium soy sauce
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the green onions, diced pepper, and ginger. Cook them in the oil for one minute.
Add the turkey and chili powder and cook them for five minutes. Break up the turkey as it cooks and, once it’s browned and cooked through, add the soy sauce. Stir will to combine.
Best Lettuce for Lettuce Wraps
I like to serve the cooked turkey filling in a bowl with lots of lettuce leaves on the side. I love to use large iceberg lettuce leaves – just scoop some turkey into the lettuce leaf, wrap and devour! The combination of the warm filling with the cold and crisp lettuce is so good.
You can also use butter lettuce or Boston lettuce leaves, too! Sometimes it helps to double up on the leaves if they tear easily.
Don’t want to deal with the wraps? I also serve this on a bed of romaine lettuce as a salad.
Make it Ahead for Easy Lunches and Dinners
When I know we have a crazy busy week coming up sometimes I meal prep ground turkey lettuce wraps ahead of time. The filling keeps really well in the refrigerator.
Just make the recipe as instructed and then portion out to containers. I don’t store the lettuce leaves with the cooked turkey because they tend to lose their crispness, so keep them separate.
It’s so nice to have a quick dinner already prepared – just warm up the filling in the microwave and serve.
If you’ve been wanting to try more hearty healthy recipes with ground turkey you should definitely give these easy lettuce wraps a try. Quick and easy, full of flavor and healthy – I hope you love it!
