Lettuce Wrapped Turkey and Sweet Potato

Lettuce wraps are something I tried a few months back. I mainly use the lettuce leaves for wrapping salads to enjoy at work. However, I thought this would be an idea to use in the fall for heartier meals. What can you think up to put in lettuce wraps?

Lettuce Wrapped Turkey and Sweet Potato

(Serves 2)


1 cup diced leftover turkey

1 cup diced leftover baked or roasted sweet potato

4 lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry

1 tbsp coconut oil

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the turkey and potato, cooking until just warmed through. Stir occasionally.
  3. Place a 2 leaves of lettuce on each of 2 plates.
  4. Spoon the turkey and potato mixture evenly over the 4 leaves.
  5. Wrap the leaves around the mixture. Serve.


  • Use the rest of the lettuce to make a simple salad, adding slices of cucumber and a diced tomato. This can be used as the base for your next meal if you add some leftover turkey.
