- ⅓ cup soy sauce or Tamari gluten-free
- 1-2 tsp. Sriracha sauce (optional for heat)
- 1 tsp. ginger (powder or freshly grated)
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

In a medium-sized bowl combine all sauce ingredients: soy sauce/Tamari, sriracha (optional), ginger, lime juice, honey/brown sugar and whisk until combined. Set aside.
In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat and add ground turkey meat. Toss until meat is almost cooked through, making sure to break down the meat into crumble-like sizes. Add carrot sticks and continue cooking and stirring for 2-3 minutes.
Add minced garlic to the turkey mixture and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Pour your sauce mixture and reduce heat on low, bringing all ingredients to a simmer. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened.
Place a layer of the shredded cabbage on the lettuce wraps and top with the warm ground turkey mixture.
Garnish with peanuts, green onions and a lime wedge. Enjoy!
