For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is both comforting to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavor as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavor that balances the earthy richness of the stew.
Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin.
You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onions and adding the stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add the cooked turkey and continue with the recipe.
