Asian turkey lettuce wraps made easily in your Instant Pot. This simple recipe is BIG on flavor and makes for a delicious low-carb, paleo, keto, or Whole30 meal. Recipe includes a Low-FODMAP option.
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 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.
Features of Affordable Paleo Cooking With Your Instant Pot:

- Perfect for an Instant Pot newbie like me because Jennifer is so clear and concise in her recipes, yet it’s also awesome for the Instant Pot master.
- Each recipe is full of fresh ingredients that are affordable for a budget-friendly approach to meals.

This was really good. I added about 2 tsp of ginger in lieu of the hot sauce and cooked grated carrots in the mix rather than using as garnish. Next time I will try it with ground pork, and the third time add a little peanut butter. Thanks for a great recipe.
