Ground turkey simmered with tons of flavorful spices and stuffed inside crisp lettuce wraps, topped with a tomato and avocado salsa.


1 pound ground turkey
1 jalapeno, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cumin, ground
1 teaspoon coriander, ground
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon Braggs or soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
Romaine lettuce leaves
Tomato/Avocado Topping:
1 cup tomatoes
2 scallions, minced
1 avocado, diced
1/2 lime, juice only
2 tablespoons cilantro
Pinch of salt


1) For the avocado topping, dice the tomatoes, scallions, and avocado. Stir together with lime juice, cilantro, and a pinch of salt. Set aside for later.

2) If you’re using whole spices (cumin, coriander, red pepper flakes), toast them in a dry pan over medium heat until fragrant, a few minutes. Then grind.

3) Mix ground spices with ground turkey, minced garlic, and the diced jalapeno. Stir in Braggs or soy sauce and cinnamon.

4) Add olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Cook turkey mixture until it’s well browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

5) Rinse and dry your romaine lettuce leaves. About 10-12 leaves should be enough for the pound of turkey mixture.

6) When turkey is cooked, scoop some into each lettuce leaf. Don’t over-fill them. Then top with a spoonful of the tomato/avocado mixture. Serve immediately!
