P.F. Chang’s Keto Copycat Lettuce Wraps + Keto Hoisin Sauce Recipe
Love Asian inspired lettuce wraps?
Lettuce wraps are my very favorite thing to order at PF Chang’s restaurant. Today I’m sharing a delicious keto-friendly version you can easily make at home that tastes super similar to the yummy, popular restaurant version – along with a keto hoisin sauce! I love these as an appetizer to share or as a light lunch idea.
Make your own Hoisin sauce!
Hoisin sauce is commonly used in lettuce wraps, and it’s absolutely delicious (but sadly it’s full of sugar and carbs). Luckily, today we’re gonna make a similar and very easy homemade version using keto-friendly ingredients featuring Swerve brown sugar sweetener instead of sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger paste, and natural almond butter.
Wow, these wraps are easy to make at home.
I love that this is essentially a one-skillet recipe that’s super easy to make. After the sauce is mixed up, brown the ground turkey and saute the chopped mushrooms and green onion. I also added chopped crunchy jicama instead of water chestnuts to save on carbs. It added some great texture!
You can, of course, use ground chicken or pork instead of turkey. It’s up to you, but we enjoyed the turkey – so yum!
Butter lettuce is amazing for wraps!
Feel free to use iceberg or another lettuce if preferred, but I really enjoyed using a clamshell of living butter lettuce because of the perfectly shaped cups. All you have to do is cut the stem at the base, and then carefully peel off the leaves to keep them intact.
