Cinnamon Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Quick Apple Chutney

Best lettuce wrap recipe realhealthyrecipes.com

This light, refreshing dinner is full of flavor.

I’d like to nominate lettuce wraps as the perfect summer food. There’s savory protein and flavorful veggies all on crunchy, fiber-filled lettuce leaves.

It’s the perfect, light and refreshing thing to eat on a warm evening.

I came up with recipe while craving a rice-pilaf dish. The shredded cauliflower, rice and onions do an awesome job of getting you to believe you’re eating grain-based pilaf. With the addition of lean, ground turkey and lettuce this comfort-food tasting meal is actually quite lean and green.

Whenever dinner is served on lettuce (or involves lettuce in any form) I cross my fingers when giving it to the kids. These wraps, however, were a huge hit mainly due to the apple chutney topping! Wheeeew, score one for mom 🙂
