Asian Wraps

I was looking for a paleo recipe and got this from my friend Julie.  Perhaps the Teriyaki sauce isn’t strictly paleo, but, hey, this was good.  Like really, really good.

2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil  (I used about a Tablespoon of coconut oil instead)
1 c. finely chopped onion
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1/4 tsp. salt (I didn’t use any salt)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp garlic salt (I sprinkled about a Tablespoon of garlic powder instead of salt over the meat)
1 12 oz bag of broccoli slaw (I ended up using 2 bags)
1 small drained water chestnuts (I didn’t use them)
1/2 c. Teriyaki sauce (I used an entire bottle of Teriyaki Baste and Glaze sauce from Smith’s)
1 tsp. sesame oil (optional) (I don’t have sesame oil and didn’t use it)
Approx. 15 butter lettuce leaves (Didn’t use them)
I bought some quality cashews from Costco and added those at the end

1) place oil into large 5 qt. skillet or other large pan over medium heat. When hot, add onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften.  Add ground turkey, salt, pepper and garlic salt.  Brown and crumble until cooked through.

2)  When turkey is cooked, stir in broccoli slaw, water chestnuts, teriyaki sauce and sesame oil.  Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until heated through. (At this point I added some whole cashews that I bought from Costco that are high quality).

Reduce heat to low until ready to serve.  Serve spoonfuls inside lettuce leaves.

Enjoy!
