Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 47 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil or oil of choice
  • 1 lb Ground Turkey
  • 4 Cups Mixed Vegetables whatever you have on hand
  • 3-4 Cups chicken or vegetable broth (preferably homemade broth)
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dried basil
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dried Garlic or 3 cloves minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt or to taste
  • 3 Tbsp Arrowroot or Tapioca Flour
  • 3-4 Tbsp Cold filtered water


  1. Place oil of choice in pot of electric pressure cooker. Heat on saute mode until liquid if not already.
  2. Place ground turkey in pot and saute until no longer pink.
  3. Add all vegetables to pot, along with the spices and broth of choice and stir well.
  4. Lock the lid on the pressure cooker and ensure the knob is set to pressure.
  5. Manually set the time to cook on high pressure for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Once cooking time has finished, use the slow release method (natural pressure release) for about 20 minutes. Make sure all pressure has been released before removing the lid.
  7. Mix arrowroot or tapioca flour with a couple of tablespoons of cold water. Incorporate some of the liquid from the stew so that the flour doesn't clump when you add it to the stew. Add the slurry to the stew and stir well.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can use whatever combination of vegetables you like in this stew - the taste will change according to what you decide to use. I usually have sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, parsnips, Swiss chard, kale, spinach and mushrooms on hand, so a little of each would do nicely.

If your pressure cooker is large enough you could double this recipe for a batch cooking session. It doesn't take long and will freeze well.
