Need dinner in 20 minutes?  I made this the other night for dinner and it was so easy and so yummy!

1 lb. ground turkey breast

10oz. bag of shredded carrots

5 scallions thinly sliced

1/3 cup teriyaki sauce

1 head iceberg lettuce – leaves separated

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil over high heat. Add the turkey and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. (I use Meat Magic seasoning too).  Stir in the carrots, scallions and 1/4 cup water; lower the heat to medium-low. Cover loosely with foil (or lid) and cook until the water is absorbed and the veggies are soft, about 4 minutes. Stir in the teriyaki sauce to taste and cook until heated through, about 4 minutes. Divide the mixture among the lettuce leaves, about 1/4 cup for each; roll up and serve immediately.

I added a little spicy brown mustard in the wraps which gave it a little kick.  Enjoy!
