Smoked Turkey and Mushroom Stew With Spinach.

Smoked turkey with Mushroom stew.

One traditional dish that I have always enjoyed is a spinach stew made normally with a combination of a variety of meat and fish. it is mostly cooked with palm oil and a local spice called locust beans. It’s a dish that was generally a staple in my house, but since embarking on my health journey I have tempered the amount of traditional dishes I cook and eat. This smoked turkey dish is inspired by this the spinach stew dish. Its hearty and tasty. Can be served with any carb of your choice, we had it with rice..

This is really straightforward you will need

Fry until the turkey is all coated with the oil then 

Add the onion, garic, scotch bonnet pepper and celery. 

Cook for about 3- 5minutes until all is coated with the oils, then 

Add the mushrooms after about a minute or so add the tomato sauce, about 1 cup of stock and 1/2  cup water, of Course you can use all stock or all water.  This is the amount I used, however you can use less if you want a thicker consistency. 

Let it come to a boil and simmer for about 2 mins until the mushrooms are nearly cooked the way you like them. Then 

Add the spinach and cook until its all come together. 

You can serve this with rice, sweet potato,  boiled plantain or yam.
