4.7 from 3 reviews

This hearty and flavorful stew is a great way to use leftover turkey!




  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan.
  2. Add the onions to the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes, until they begin to soften.
  3. Add the carrots, butternut squash, and garlic, and sauté for about two more minutes.
  4. Add the stock to the pan, bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer on medium low.
  5. After the veggies simmer for about 10 minutes, stir in the turkey and peas.
  6. Let the stew simmer uncovered at least 30 more minutes until the veggies are good and tender. A full hour of total cooking time is ideal to really let the flavor build up.
  7. Stir occasionally as the stew simmers, and break up a few pieces of the squash as you do to distribute the flavor throughout the liquid.
  8. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve in a bowl along with crusty bread. Enjoy!
