paleo asian turkey wraps

these are a quick go-to in our house...

1 pound of ground organic turkey
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
3-4 green onions, finely diced
8-10 shitake mushrooms, cut into strips
2 tablespoons of black bean garlic paste (not paleo, but it's a only small amount)
1/4 teaspoon of sesame oil (a little goes a long way here, don't overdo it!)
good olive oil
boston lettuce
sliced or slivered almonds

saute the bell pepper, green onions and mushrooms in the olive oil over medium-high heat, season with salt and pepper. once peppers have become soft (5-7 minutes) add the ground turkey. once turkey is almost cooked through, add the black bean paste and the sesame oil. cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until turkey is crumbled and cooked through.

scoop heaping spoonfuls into washed and dried lettuce cups and top with slivered almonds. wrap them up and eat them like a taco!

customize this to your liking. almost any vegetable-protein combo works here.
