Turkey Lettuce Boats


1 tsp. olive oil
450g/16oz lean turkey mince
2 x baby gem lettuce
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. mild chilli powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. paprika
100g/3.5oz chopped tomatoes
60ml/2fl oz chicken broth
½ avocado
1 tomato
2 spring onions
2 tbsp. Greek yoghurt
1 tbsp. pumpkin seeds


Heat the olive oil in a frying pan.
Crush the garlic cloves, then add into the pan along with the turkey mince and cook over a medium-high heat until the mince has whitened, gently breaking it up as you cook. (Approximately 5 minutes).
Add in the mild chilli powder, cumin, paprika, chopped tomatoes and chicken broth then stir until well combined. Once boiling - reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and leave for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile chop the avocado, tomato and spring onion into small chunks and peal the leaves from the lettuce.
Once the mince is ready, add 1 tablespoon of mince to each lettuce leaf, then top with avocado, tomato, spring onion, Greek yoghurt and pumpkin seeds to serve.


These healthy and delicious turkey lettuce boats are quick and easy to make and full of so much flavour. They make a great appetiser for when you’re cooking for friends and family or an equally satisfying lunch. They’re delicious, light and a great low carbohydrate recipe.

We’ve served ours with a dash of Greek yoghurt and some pumpkin seeds on top.
