This one pot turkey and white bean skillet with spinach is just 5 ingredients and about 15 minutes to make. It’s simple, tasty and perfect for using up leftover turkey!
We have made the sad decision to stay home for Thanksgiving this year.
Normally, we head to the beach and spend the week with my parents. There are boat rides, walks on the beach, sunsets on the porch, a 5K turkey trot, and my mom and I team up in the kitchen to do all the prepping and cooking for our meal.
But 2020 happened, and we decided it just wasn’t safe for us to all be together in the same house for the week. I know it’s the right call, but it makes me so sad. (And I definitely shed more than a few tears. So did my mom. So did my daughter.)
Alas, we are hoping to see my parents for a little backyard dining for Thanksgiving, and we’ll just make the most of it. I’m thankful we live in the same city and can at least do that.
But let’s move on to today’s recipe.
This one-pot turkey white bean skillet with spinach is something that just had to come out of me.
This is one of many, many twists I have on my family’s classic “one pot wonder” as we call it. (Also known as a low carb leftover chicken recipe with spinach cause that’s a bit more descriptive.)
It’s such a go-to dish in our house. And while the original is a favorite, I do also love changing up the flavors and switching out the ingredients to make it seem new and different.
And the prospect of making a post-holiday version was just so tempting.
So here’s my leftover Thanksgiving turkey edition of the one pot wonder!
We’ve got sautéed onion and garlic, leftover chopped Thanksgiving turkey, some canned white beans and some fresh spinach to wilt down.
It takes maybe 5 minutes to prep, no more than 10 minutes to cook, and it makes your leftovers into something brand new….
