Ginger Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce wraps

Ginger Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce wraps

This is a pretty easy meal...taste good, easy ingredients I usually have. It is something light and also works for an appetizer if you ever need one!

( also...I didn't do the carrot thing they make you do in this recipe with the water??? I just dumped in some shredded carrots with the mushrooms.
