Turkey Lentil Stew

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by cookin mimi

A very hearty and tasty stew that makes good use of leftover turkey bits. I had these things on hand and tossed them in a pot and it made a great stew that I will make again. You can easily change the vegetables and seasonings to suit your tastes.

Surprise! I would classify this as chili. I was a little more in the mood for a curry or I am not sure what, but this was OK. I made the recipe with leftovers from Thanksgiving turkey, with basically the ingredients as shown... except that I used a package of frozen veg mix- onions, carrots, celery, and peppers - rather than the fresh. My tomatoes were crushed rather than diced (which might also have contributed to the chili effect). Very quick and easy to make.
