Ingredients

1 - pound ground turkey
3 - cloves garlic, minced
1- tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 - teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder or curry powder
2 - cups coarsely shredded broccoli (1 small bunch)
1 - small red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and ground black pepper
1 - recipe Spicy Peanut Sauce or 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
8 - large Boston (Bibb) lettuce leaves (about 2 heads)
8 - lime wedges
Snipped fresh cilantro (optional)


Directions
In a large nonstick skillet cook turkey over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up turkey with a wooden spoon. Stir in garlic, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon of the five-spice powder; cook about 5 minutes more or until turkey is no longer pink. Using a slotted spoon transfer turkey mixture to a bowl; set aside.


In the same skillet cook broccoli, onion, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder about 4 minutes or just until broccoli and onion are tender. Stir in the turkey mixture; heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


To serve, spoon about 1 tablespoon Spicy Peanut Sauce on each lettuce leaf. Divide turkey-broccoli mixture among lettuce leaves. Squeeze a lime wedge over the turkey-broccoli mixture on each wrap. If desired, top with cilantro. Fold in the two opposite sides of the lettuce leaf; fold one of the remaining sides over the filling and tuck it under the other side. Serve immediately.

*TIP:

Before shredding the broccoli, consider peeling the stalks, especially if they seem tough. Shred broccoli in the food processor fitted with a coarse shredding blade or use a manual shredder. Or, use purchased shredded broccoli.
