Bring it on...

A Fall Favorite...
Pumpkin Veggie Stew!


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 large can peeled & chopped tomatoes
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 large carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked fresh or frozen peas or lima beans
  • 1 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add the broth, potatoes, carrots, celery and peas.  Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Meanwhile saute the ground turkey until fully cooked. If desired, the last 10 -15 minutes add small pieces of broken spaghetti noodles. Stir in the pumpkin, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook 10 minutes longer or until heated through. Yield: 7-10 servings.

 Stay Cozy, Carrie

I love stew weather! Nothing smells better than a big pot of soup and maybe some hot bread. What a nice time of year.

This certainly is the best time of year for homemade soups and stews...it fill that house with such a great aroma . I'll have to try that. I have NEVER used pumpkin in a soup before.
