You guys, these WRAPS!
I’m excited to introduce you to these lettuce wraps and also tell you all about the cookbook from which they were born.
This recipe for Instant Pot Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps comes straight out of Jennifer Robins’s new book, Affordable Paleo Cooking With Your Instant Pot.
Robins is the blogger behind Predominantly Paleo, and is also the author of Paleo Cooking With Your Instant Pot, The Paleo Kids Cookbook, Down South Paleo, and the co-author of The New Yiddish Kitchen.
In case you’re new to Jennifer’s work, she’s a powerhouse badass who whips up insanely mouth-watering paleo meals and also creates options for low-carb, keto, and AIP meals as well. Not only am I completely inspired and impressed by Jennifer’s energy to produce such amazing recipes, but the fact that she does so while battling multiple autoimmune diseases just blows my mind.
These Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps speedy quick, only require a handful of basic ingredients that you can find anywhere and fit the bill for a mouth-watering low-carb paleo or keto dinner (or lunch)!
My favorite part about the cookbook (aside from the obvious: it’s chocker block full of incredible meals) is all recipes are so simple to prepare, include ingredients you can buy from just about any grocery store, making it an amazing resource for those who love to cook but enjoy keeping it healthful and practical. Each recipe comes with options to make it either Low-Carb, AIP, Vegetarian, Nut-Free, or a combination thereof.

Here’re them lettuce wraps –
Instant Pot Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps
- 3 Tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
- 1 tsp sesame oil omit for AIP
- 1 large onion diced, omit for Low-FODMAP
- 10 ounces button mushrooms
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 3 tsp minced garlic omit for Low-FODMAP
- 1 tsp hot sauce omit for AIP
- 1/2 cup coconut aminos
- 1 tsp onion powder omit for Low-FODMAP
- 1 tsp mustard powder omit for AIP
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 12 oz whole hearts of romaine
- chives minced, optional
- carrots grated, optional
Begin by drizzling the cooking oils into the stainless steel bowl of your Instant Pot, then press the saute button and add in the onion and mushrooms. Allow them to cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to release water.
Add in the ground turkey, garlic, hot sauce, coconut aminos, onion powder, sea salt and mustard powder, and give everything a quick stir. Secure the lid, close the pressure valve and press the Keep Warm/Cancel button. Then press the Pressure Cook/Manual button and press +/- buttons until 5 minutes is displayed.
Allow the cooking cycle to complete, then quick release the pressure valve and remove the lid once safe to do so. Remove the turkey and drain off the liquid using a strainer. Set the turkey aside and return the liquid back to the Instant Pot.
Press the Keep Warm/Cancel button once more, then press the Saute button and allow the sauce to reduce for about 5 minutes.
Serve by spooning the cooked turkey mixture into the romaine leaves and drizzling with the reserved sauce. Garnish with fresh chives and shredded carrots if desired.
