  • Combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, egg, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Using a 2-teaspoon cookie scoop, shape the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on the baking rack.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 12 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and celery and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, potatoes, carrots, peas, basil, and red pepper flakes; stir until well combined. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, until potatoes and carrots are cooked and the broth has somewhat reduced, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Stir in meatballs and simmer until heated through, 5 to 7 minutes. Season stew with salt and pepper.

I made this exactly as written (as I think everyone needs to if they are going to leave a rating!) The taste was excellent. The meatballs were quite soft, so I think next time I would use dried breadcrumb instead of fresh. The cookie sheet/baking rack thing made sense so that any drippings from the meatballs sludged off, but it is not a necessary step and you could just cook them directly on a cookie that is sprayed with non-stick spray. Ground turkey is not too expensive and low-fat, so I try to use it as a substitute for ground beef. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Read More

Comforting dish! The meatballs were little bland and too dense though! I think that 1 cup of bread crumbs was too much! I might cut it by half next time and maybe use fresh minced onion and garlic instead of the powder form. I wanted this to be more like a soup, so I used the whole carton of broth and couple more cups of water. It made a nice meal for us with some garlic bread. Read More

Can a stew be both hearty and light? Apparently yes. Has come out delicious on two tries now. the broth is thin, more soup than stew to my mind, but is thick with veggies and turkey meatballs. Filling but not heavy. Really enjoyed. Read More

I used frozen italian turkey meatballs, and next time will try frozen hashbrowns for the potatoes, to save time. I left out the crushed red pepper, just set it on the table for individual tastes. The stew was rather bland. Read More
