Recipe by Happy Harry #2
Sure, we all know about the sandwiches and the great turkey soups, but what about an actual stew from the leftovers? This is a good hardy stew that can be changed to your liking. I have used yams in place of white potatoes, sometimes added a sweet winter squash like kabocha or butternut. Start here and make it your own....with my blessings!
- 4 medium potatoes, diced
- 6 carrots, chopped
- 3 celery ribs, chopped
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced (or more to taste)
- 3 beef tomatoes, seeded and diced (canned ok)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons oil
- 4 cups chicken broth, unsalted
- 4 cups cooked turkey, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sweet basil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme, crushed
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- turkey stuffing (optional, *)
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat 11/2 tsp oil in a large saucpot.Saute onions til soft; add garlic, carrots and celery. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
- Add potatoes, tomatoes and broth to the pot. Bring up to a boil, then lower to a simmer for 15 minutes. Add turkey and seasonings. Cook another 10 minutes.
- Salt and pepper as desired.
- *I love to put a scoop of stuffing in the middle of bowl before adding stew. It takes the place of serving a bread portion.
