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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 11/2 tsp oil in a large saucpot.Saute onions til soft; add garlic, carrots and celery. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Salt and pepper as desired.
  4. *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.
