  • 1 Tablespoon unrefined, cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Pound Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey
  • 2 cloves gralic
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1/4 Cup Hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Shoyu
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger, finely grated

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to break up the turkey as it cooks; drain excess fat. Stir in garlic, onion, celery, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, and crushed red pepper until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in cashews and green onions and cook until onions are tender, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste. To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the turkey mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style. Garnish with cilantro leaves and/or carrots if desired.
