Paleo Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps – a delicious, easy and quick low carb dinner or lunch! 

These easy ground turkey lettuce wraps are perfect for a super fast weeknight meal or light lunch. They  are basically tacos you ate in leaves and come together in only about 15 minutes from start to finish.

What’s not to love about paleo meals that come together this fast?

Why you will love Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps: 

The juicy and savory ground turkey meat combined with the earty umami-packed mushrooms and salty coconut aminos work perfectly enveloped in the light, crisp lettuce cups.

Plus these are so fun to eat – a bit like tacos minus the processed carbs. These are in fact gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb, Whole30 and paleo! WIN! 

I’ve been on a big ground turkey kick lately. I have no idea why, but up until last week I’d never cooked with ground turkey. Sure, I’ve made a turkey on Thanksgiving. But ground turkey? It’s like I’ve been living under a culinary rock.

I was surprised that it actually tasted good. I feel like maybe I avoided turkey because I heard it’s bland and because I know people who are afraid of red meat often opt for turkey (ie: turkey burgers) which is stupid and just annoyed me.

But I’m a convert now. Ground turkey is cheap, versatile and tastes awesome.

Why ground turkey is one of my favorite sources of protein:

  • Ground turkey is a healthy alternative to ground beef . Really, you can use it as a simple swap in pretty much every recipe that calls for minced pork or beef.
  • Minced turkey lasts really well – I keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • Turkey takes on whatever flavors you add – a high protein canvas for all your favorite flavors. What’s not to love!?

Tips for making Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps: 

  • You can use any type of green leafy lettuce for lettuce wraps, but what I think works best is either bibb lettuce, romaine hearts or iceberg lettuce.
  • I used crimini mushrooms but diced shiitake, white button mushrooms or baby bellas would work equally well.
  • For meal prepping, prepare the filling and reheat quickly in the microwave or on the stove. Store the lettuce leaves in the fridge and assemble the wraps when ready to eat.

Variations on this healthy lettuce wraps recipe: 

  • These healthy paleo lettuce wraps would be equally delicious with ground chicken so feel free to use whatever protein you have on hand.
  • If you’re a fan on spicy food, feel free to add some more Paleo Sriracha sauce.
  • Another great addition would be a tablespoon of nut butter (like almond butter). Simply whisk it smooth with the coconut aminos and the sesame oil and add to the fried ground turkey along with sriracha.
