2 Tablespoons Fresh Ginger, Minced

Cook turkey in skillet about 5 minutes, stirring until turkey crumbles and is no longer pink. Add mushrooms, and next 5 ingredients. Increase heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring constantly, 4 minutes. Add green onions if desired and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Spoon mixture evenly onto lettuce leaves; roll up.
