Quick and Cozy Turkey Stew for #SundayFunday
Welcome to #SundayFunday! Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm invited fellow bloggers to kick back, relax, and share something tasty and fun each weekend. "Sunday should be a Family Funday. Please join us in sharing recipes that will help you to enjoy your Sunday." If you're a blogger interested in joining us, just visit our Facebook group and request to join - we'd love to have you!
Today I prompted our lovely group to share 30 Minute or Less recipes to address the Holiday levels of hectic! There's so many days when it just doesn't feel like you can find enough hours in the day, where fast food or take out sound like a good option. We're here to give you a handful of ideas to whip up in no time flat even on the busiest day!
Sunday Funday 30 Minutes Or Less
Do you have any leftover turkey from the Holidays stashed away? Or perhaps some leftover cooked chicken? With just a few staple ingredients you can have a very cozy and warming stew ready to serve in very little time. About half of the time is hands off as well - so you can clean the kitchen up or get a few presents wrapped while it simmers!
Quick and Cozy Turkey Stew
1 TBS vegetable oil
3 celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 medium onion, diced
3 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices (or equivalent amount of baby carrots, diced)
4 cups chicken or turkey broth
3 cups leftover cooked turkey, chopped into bite sized pieces
1 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp mushroom powder (optional)
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat, and add in the celery and onion. Stir for a few minutes until they begin to caramelize. Potatoes and carrots, stirring another couple minutes to get a little color on the vegetables.
- Add in the broth, seasonings, and cooked turkey. Turn the heat to high, cover, and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and allow to cook, covered, for about 15 minutes or until veggies are tender.
- Whisk the 3/4 cup water together with the 1/4 cup flour in a small bowl until very smooth. Stream the mixture into the soup, whisking constantly as you do. Bring mixture to a simmer and allow to thicken and cook for another couple minutes.
- Taste, and adjust the seasonings to your preference (I used about twice the amount of called for seasonings above, but flavor will largely depend on your broth and your preference)!
