Ingredients:

  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 medium sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch dice (roasted, see note below)
  • 1/3 cup whole cashew nuts
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • Serve with lime wedges and sumac if desired.

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add ground turkey and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the turkey as it cooks. Remove turkey from the pan.
  2. Add garlic, onion, and ginger and more oil if needed. Cook until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Add paprika, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, cayenne pepper and cook for another minute or so.
  3. Stir in turkey, sweet potatoes, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir-fry for another couple of minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Stir in cashew nuts and lime juice and then remove from heat. Toss in the cilantro.
  5. To serve, spoon in a couple of spoonfuls of stir-fry into an open lettuce leaf cup. Loosely wrap and eat like a soft taco.

Note: I had an extra roasted sweet potato from the night before. I made Roasted Sweet Potatoes Hummus and roasted extra potatoes to use in this dish.
