“I received a free sample of Kikkoman soy sauce mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Kikkoman and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.”
This dish is light and has an abundance of fresh flavor! I used spinach and carrots as my veggie because that’s what I had in my fridge as leftovers from another recipe.

These Easy Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps are extremely quick, easy, hearty and full of delicious flavors. The best part is I used Kikkoman’s Less Sodium Soy Sauce so I reduced the sodium intake on this! Soy sauce is rich in savory unami flavor that gives this dish a bursting flavor! This dish can be served as lunch, dinner, snack or even an appetizer by making these bite size.
If you are wanting to make more of a meal out of this, simply add cooked quinoa, rice or brown rice to the turkey meat! I like to keep it light for most of my meals but there are times where I crave those extra carbs. This dish is perfect because you are getting lean protein and vegetables–a perfect combination to eating healthy and getting the right nutrients in too.
