  1. Soften the onions: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan. Add the onions to the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes, until they begin to soften.
  2. Add veggies: Add the carrots, butternut squash, and garlic, and sauté for about two more minutes.
  3. Add stock: Add the stock to the pan, bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer on medium low.
  4. Add turkey and simmer: After the veggies have been simmering for about 10 minutes, stir in the turkey and peas. Let the stew simmer uncovered at least 30 more minutes until the veggies are good and tender. 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.
  5. Finish the stew: A full hour of total cooking time is ideal to really let the flavor build up. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve in a bowl along with crusty bread. Enjoy!
