Got a few turkey leftovers? We know exactly what to do for that! To say my father enjoys cooking would be to say that the Empire State Building is sort of tall. He loves cooking and he can always be counted on to know what to do with leftovers. Zero-waste is the aim so let’s make some turkey stew.
Now this is a family recipe so please know that these measurements for the most part are a dab of this and a pinch of that. But it’s meant to be a casual dish so have fun and if you add a little more turkey or mushrooms or whatever, it’s all good.
2 tbsp of Olive Oil
1 tbsp of butter
Frozen mixed vegetables
3 cups of water
1 cup of mushrooms
2 cups of cubed potatoes
1 cup of Elbow macaroni
1 tbsp of poultry seasoning
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of pepper
2 cups of cubed Leftover turkey (Pick turkey off the bone then cube it. Measurements can vary. Dark meat is best but white meat is fine)
2 tsp of cornstarch
- Coat the Botton of your pot with olive oil and add butter over a low flame.
- Add mushroom and a cup of mixed vegetables and mushrooms.
- Once this combination is soft, add turkey to the mixture.

Serving time…get it while it’s hot!
