Turkey Stew with a TWIST

We’re never EXACTLY sure which our favorite meal is: the Turkey Dinner or the leftover soup the next day! But, even our beloved Turkey Soup can get a bit tired after a while… so we made a few simple modifications and ta-da – Butternut Squash Turkey Stew!

Smooth and rich flavours, no grains, gluten or dairy, and only a few ingredients, you can toss this stew together in 10 minutes flat! Perfect for those of us who spent hours in the Kitchen yesterday!


  • 1 1/2 Leftover Turkey (can use leftover Rotisserie chicken as well!)
  • Chicken or Turkey Stock (homemade or I used Bo & Marrows Chicken Bone Broth)
  • 1/4 White Onion, minced
  • 2 tsp crushed Garlic
  • 1 Cup Diced Peppers
  • 2 Ears of corn, stripped (or canned corn)
  • 1 Cup Butternut Squash, Diced
  • 2  Sprigs fresh Rosemary
  • 2 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Olive Oil


  1. In a medium saucepan, sautee olive oil, onions, garlic, and fresh herbs over medium heat.
  2. Add in Cubed Butternut squash and sautee until squash is softened, but not fully cooked.
  3. Add in leftover meat and Stock/ Broth of your choice
  4. Reduce heat and simmer
  5. Add in peppers and corn (I also added peas because my son is OBSESSED)
  6. Season with salt + pepper and serve!
