Lettuce Wraps

We have been loving these lettuce wraps, I swear I've made them at least 4 times over the past two months probably.  The recipe comes from my friend Heather, who made them for one of our freezer meal swaps.  I love how versatile they are, you can throw in whatever veggies you have, use the type of meat you prefer, and drizzle them which fun sauces!  I will sometimes make rice to serve with them as well (in the picture below).  So delicious!

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
1 tablespoon oil
1 small onion, diced
1 bell pepper, red, orange or yellow
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup edamame
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 pound ground chicken or turkey
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 bibb or iceberg lettuce “cups
Optional Sauce: soy sauce, teriyaki, sweet chili sauce, siracha! 
Combine soy sauce, honey, and cilantro in a bowl and set aside.
Using a large saute pan, cook the onion in 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat for 2 minutes.
Add the bell pepper and cook an additional 2 minutes.
Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute then add the chicken or turkey to the pan and saute for an additional 7 minutes or until cooked through.
Stir in the soy sauce mixture, salt and cook for 2 minute or until juices evaporate.
Serve in lettuce cups (to eat then just roll the lettuce around the stir fried chicken and eat them like a burrito).
