Turkey Stew

Perfect for your leftover turkey after the holiday dinner. I used a 10 lb turkey and made 2 large pots of this stew with bone broth from the carcass. I don't regret using the carcass to make homemade bone broth, it's so delicious (recipe below), but you can also use a carton of store-bought broth.


cooked turkey, chopped or shredded into bite-sized pieces (I used a 10 lb turkey and made 2 batches of this recipe)

1 L GF Chicken broth (or see recipe below to make your own)

1 750 g bag of frozen chopped vegetables of choice (I used a bag of soup vegetables for one and a bag of mixed peas, corn, carrots, and green beans for the other)

1 400 g bag of frozen chopped sweet potato (or 1 large sweet potato peeled and chopped into 1-inch chunks)

1 tsp each of thyme and sage (or 2 tsp poultry seasoning)

~3 tbsp cornstarch or tapioca starch

salt to taste


  1. Add all of the ingredients except the salt and cornstarch to a pot and bring to a boil.

  2. Turn heat to medium-low and let simmer, stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.

  3. Taste and add salt if needed (this will depend on how salty your broth is).

  4. In a glass mix the cornstarch with a little bit of cold water to dissolve. Bring the stew to a boil and slowly pour in the cornstarch while stirring. Let boil for an additional minute to thicken before removing from heat.

  5. Serve and enjoy!
