Asian Lettus Wraps

Tastes like P.F. Chang's and Pei WeiMakes
4-6 servings

½ cup finely copped or shredded carrots
½ cup water
1 (16oz.) package of ground turkey
1 cup chopped mushrooms
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 small can of water chestnuts diced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
¼ cup hoisen sauce (can be found with the oriental foods)
½ cup sliced green onions
1 head iceberg lettuce, separated into leaves

Cook carrots and ½ cup water in a sauce pan over high heat, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes or until carrots are softened and water is evaporated.

In a large skillet cook turkey over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring until turkey crumbles and is no longer pink. Add carrots, mushrooms, and next 8 ingredients. Increase heat to medium-high, and cook stirring constantly, 4 minutes. Add green onions, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Spoon mixture evenly onto lettuce leaves; roll up.
