Lettuce-Wrapped Turkey Sliders with Asian Slaw


This one's another cooling recipe. It's still hot out there, amiright? Not that I'm complaining, just stating the facts. I'm doing my best to bring you recipes that you get you in and out of the kitchen FAST so you can hang with your fam while the days are long and warm and the evenings are perfect. 

Mixed in to these turkey sliders, you've got some scallion and jalapeno. If you like it hot, add the whole pepper. Not so much? Tone it down a bit. Same goes for the scallion--it's a choose your own adventure in Flavor Town. The crunchy slaw is tangy and sweet which cools ya down after a bite of that burger. 


What You'll Need (Serves 4):

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 apple
  • 1 bunch green-leaf lettuce
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 TBSP sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar

What I Did:

  1. Preheat the grill to medium.
  2. Add the turkey to a bowl. Chop the scallions and jalapeno. Add them to the turkey. Season generously with salt and pepper. 
  3. Mix turkey and veggies with hands until just combined. Form about 8 small patties. 
  4. Cook the patties on the grill, turning once, about 5 minutes per side.
  5. Cut the root end off the lettuce head and thoroughly rinse. Remove the large leaves and save the rest for later.
  6. Cut the apple in to four quarters, leaving the core in the middle. Thinly slice the apple, then cut the apple in to matchsticks.
  7. Add the apple, cabbage, carrots, and lime juice to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. In a blender, combine the sunflower butter, vinegar, aminos, and sesame oil. Pour dressing over slaw and combine.
  9. Place the patties on lettuce cups, add your slaw, and dig in!
