What’s Cookin? Fresh Fare Friday 11/23: Turkey Lettuce Tacos

What is Fresh Fare Friday? By the end of the week, I’m usually craving something light, a little on the healthier side, and easy to prepare. I’ll try to pick out my favorite recipes, featuring fewer ingredients, fresh from the market. Not strictly vegetarian, but leaning that way.

Oh, and enjoy!


  • 3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp apple jam
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp each salt and red chili pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
  • Cilantro leaves (optional)


In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, jam, lemon juice, salt, chili flakes and cornstarch. Set aside.

In a large non-stick wok, cook ground turkey, garlic and onion over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until turkey is no longer pink and fully cooked through. Transfer to a bowl.

Add bell pepper to wok and cook and stir until pepper begins to soften, about 3 or 4 minutes. Add in cooked turkey, pineapple and sauce. Cook and stir to combine.

Spoon mixture into lettuce leaves, garnish with cilantro and serve.
