Poultry Lettuce Boats

It’s our one year anniversary! A year ago today we posted our very first recipe! How crazy is that?

Today we are sharing one of our favorite healthy and tasty recipes, Lettuce Boats! If you really hate lettuce, you can always substitute the lettuce for tortillas or whatever, but at least try this healthy alternative! As we like to say they are bomb diggity. Healthy, filling, and delicious! Packed full of protein, texture, crunch and they’re totally guilt free.

Celebrate our one year anniversary with us by eating well and making these mouth watering lettuce boats!

Lettuce Boats

  • 1 pound ground Turkey or Chicken
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large carrot or 10 baby carrots
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (a few splashes for meat seasoning)
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 lb of mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Lettuce (either romaine for boats or butter lettuce for cups)


  • 1/4 cup of hoisin
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons mustard

Step 1:

Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Start browning the ground meat and add a few dashes of soy sauce for seasoning.

Step 2:

Once the meat is half way, add the garlic, chopped onions, and carrots. Incorporated it well.

Step 3:

Grate ginger into the pan, also add: soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and sriracha.

Step 4:

In a small saucepan, heat some more oil to sauté the mushrooms and green onions. Season with salt and pepper.

After you sauté the mushrooms and green onions, add them to the pan with the meat and give everything a good mix.  Taste and adjust any seasonings from here.

Step 6:

Sauce: soy sauce, hoisin, sesame oil, and a mustard of your liking. We chose Coleman’s English mustard because its one of our favorites, but you can also choose dijon, spicy or even just regular yellow mustard.

Step 7:

Serve with lettuce as a vehicle for the meat to your mouth!
