This past week John, his sister Laura and I went to a “Cooking 4 Life” class he found on Groupon. It was pretty legit. Over a couple hours we learned 4 healthy Thai food recipes.

The best, and simplest, healthy Thai food recipe was for the Thai Ground Turkey Wrap. Check it out.

Healthy Thai Ground Turkey Wrap

Serves 6


  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 large jalapeno
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil
  • 1 large head Boston or other leafy lettuce, separated into leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoons Sriracha (chili sauce), plus more for serving
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 small shallots, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped mint
  • 1 cup chopped salted peanuts

Prep Directions

In a bowl, mix the turkey, garlic, shallots and minced jalapeno. In a small bowl, whisk the limejuice, fish sauce, brown sugar and the 1 teaspoon of Sriracha.

In a skillet, heat the oil. Add the turkey mixture and cook over high heat, stirring to break up the meat, until no pink remains, 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the limejuice mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer the meat to a bowl; stir in the herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Top with the peanuts and sliced jalapenos. Serve with lime wedges, Sriracha and wrapped it all up with the lettuce! Your healthy Thai food is done!

      You know I don’t have much Thai food either, and normally wouldn’t be able to identify it for you. But this was great-and healthy!

  2. I love ALL food and I LOVE lettuce wraps! Yummm. Definitely putting this on the list; in-fact, I’m printing this off right now. Boom!

    • Todd Mayfield says

      Good to hear! I love Quinoa for it’s health benefits and low glycemic index. But hate the texture and bland taste. I’ll have to give your recipe a shot sometime.

  3. This sounds great. It’s been a long time since I’ve had Thai food. This reminds me of why I used to like it.

  4. Sounds good, I’ll try it tonight!

  5. this recipe went down a real treat! I feel then Spices were so appealing and all my guests really enjoyed this!!! I love thai food and would recommend this to anyone!
    Lots of love!
