Weight Watchers Thai Lettuce Wraps are made with ground turkey and are flavorful and low in points. A perfect Weight Watchers recipe for lunch or dinner time.
DO I HAVE TO USE GROUND TURKEY?
I love recipes that make substituting easy! These Weight Watches Thai Lettuce Wraps are easy to modify for your own tastes.
I used extra lean ground turkey in this recipe because it is much lower in WW points then other ground meats.
This is optional and the recipe will turn out just as tasty if you use ground beef or even ground chicken.
EASY SUBSTITUTIONS FOR LETTUCE WRAPS
There are some other ingredients in this recipe that are simple to substitute.
Tamari sauce is a Japanese soy sauce. It is made by fermenting soy beans and is usually darker and less salty than regular soy sauce. If you don't have any tamari sauce on hand you can use regular soy sauce or even coconut aminos.
The apple cider vinegar in this recipe could be swapped out for rice vinegar if you keep that on hand.
If you don't like to use different types of sweetners you can use coconut sugar or even regular white sugar in place of the stevia/erythritol blend.
Remember that if you modify the recipe the WW points total may be different!

HOW TO MAKE WW THAI LETTUCE WRAPS
This is a very simple meal to prepare. The meat mixture can also be made up ahead of time and warmed up when you are ready to use it! It makes great leftovers.
STEP ONE: BROWN MEAT
Brown the lean ground turkey in a large skillet over medium-high heat. This usually takes about 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up the meat.
STEP TWO: ADD SEASONINGS
Add the tamari sauce, apple cider vinegar, stevia/erythritol blend packet, crushed red pepper flakes, fish sauce, garlic, and ginger, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
STEP THREE: MAKE WRAPS
Now you can spoon 1/4 of the mixture onto a large piece of butter lettuce.
Top with some of the shredded carrots, chopped scallions and 1/2 tablespoon of roasted peanuts.
Squeeze some fresh lime juice from a lime wedge on top, if desired.
This makes 4 wraps and serves 4 people.
If you are following the WW program this is a very low point meal idea.
There are 2 points per serving on the Green Plan. There is only 1 point per serving on the Blue and Purple Plans.
