Garlic Garlic Lettuce Wraps

I had a monthly meeting for Tastefully Simple consultants tonight and for each month's meeting we are supposed to prepare a food dish using one of the Tastefully Simple products.

I love lettuce wraps (had my first at PF Changs) and decided that I could easily make some using Garlic Garlic.

They were so easy to make. I just first browned some ground turkey in 2 tbsp. of cooking oil and then added in shredded carrots and nuts and then some of the Garlic Garlic. Now I added a lot, probably about 2-3 tbsp. because I really like garlic! :) Then I added in some sweet Asian dressing.

Tastefully Simple has a fantastic Sesame Teriyaki sauce that would have been awesome but I ran out and didn't have any.

Then you simply take some romaine lettuce leaves (I buy them as "Just Leaves" and not as a head) and add a spoonful of the turkey mixture and then put it in your mouth! OMG!!! So fab-u-lous!!! They are great and a lot of fun for kids. Kids seem to really like eating with their hands and so lettuce wraps are perfect.

You can find the Garlic Garlic at my Tastefully Simple website here. Everyone seems to really really love the Garlic Garlic. It can be made as a dip for chips or veggies or you can put it on fish or chicken or add it into meatloaf, etc. There are so many uses for it. And it comes in a pretty decent size bottle for a spice. The marinade/sauces are also a huge hit. I am running a special right now, that anyone with an order over $50.00 I will let you choose one thing off of the website for free (excluding the gift sets)!!!!!

I have done fundraisers in the past too. It is a perfect fundraiser for schools (PTA) or sports teams or church groups. The easy thing is that the products get sent directly to the buyer and so there is no figuring out who bought what and so on! Let me know if you would like more information on the awesome fundraiser I could do for you. I am way better than gift wraps or chocolate!!! Ha! :)

Brides have bought The Trio of spices for gift favors for wedding guests and they attach a little ribbon with a note saying, "Thank you for spicing up our life with your love and kindness." How cute and unique is that??? Or brides can register for weddings through my website. What would be more perfect than a new married couple having a fully stocked pantry???

Tastefully Simple is an awesome company to work for and if you need extra moolah to pay off credit card debt or bills then it would be perfect for you. Plus, you get 30% off all of the products! You can be a stay-at-home mom and still earn money (about $500 a month only working one night a week) but on your schedule! I have two friends that are stay-at-home moms and they do it because they love the time it gets them out of the house around other people, but they can be at home during the day and one of them made $1500.00 extra last month!! Let me know if you want more information.


  1. Garlic Garlic sounds great! We had lettuce wraps at PF Chang's last week when we were in Florida! Our favorite appetizer!

  2. I make them too. WE love lettuce wraps. Yours look delicious.

    I have never heard of Tastefully Simple. Sounds intriguing to me.

    I tried to click on the link you provided, but it didn't work??
