10 Quick and Easy Stew Recipes for Dinner

by Jacqueline Samaroo


Warm and comforting stews are perfect evening meals as outdoor temperatures begin to fall. What makes them even better, is when you don’t have to wait hours for them to “stew”. It feels great to be able to whip up a quick and easy stew for dinner when you are pressed for time or just don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen.

These 10 stew dinners are hearty and healthy options you can have with any accompaniment you wish (such as chunks of crusty bread or fluffy rice) or simply on their own.

chicken and mushroom stew

1. Chicken, Bacon and Mushroom Stew

“It has been a firm winter favorite for years now.” nightingale

The beautifully melded flavors in this dish will make everyone think you took hours getting it just right! Brown some chicken meat and set it aside. Fry together bacon, garlic and button mushrooms before adding in a little flour. Next in are chicken stock and white wine, then leave it to thicken. Add the chicken and some thyme and allow it to simmer until the chicken is cooked. Stir in parsley and season your stew with salt and pepper. Serve the stew on top of some cooked risoni pasta to which you’ve added frozen peas, butter and a little parsley. Seconds, everyone?

sausage stew


5. Bean and Chicken Sausage Stew

“Such a basic concept to be built upon.” nlh1951

While there are similarities between this dish and the one above, their best common trait is how simple yet yummy they are! Brown sliced sausage then add thinly sliced garlic and cook some more. Cannellini beans, chicken broth and diced tomatoes are next. Allow it to boil then add in some kale and season the pot with salt and pepper. Let it simmer with the occasional stir until the kale wilts. Of course, you can change up the taste each time just by using a different type of sausage – how easy!

6. Egyptian Edamame Stew

“Quick and delicious” EatingWell User

Lots of lovely sauce is the winner in this dish. Cook edamame in boiling water until tender then drain them and set them aside. Cook some onion in heated oil in a covered sauce pan, adding zucchini when the onion is softened. Let it cook until the onion begins to brown then add garlic, cayenne, cumin and coriander and cook some more giving it a stir. Diced tomatoes are next then you allow the mixture to boil. Stir in the edamame to heat through and remove the stew from the heat before adding cilantro and lemon juice. Couscous or pita bread goes wonderfully with this.

Okra takes center stage in this warming dish. Over medium heat, dissolve a vegetable or chicken bouillon cube in water. Add in frozen, cut okra then leave it to simmer. Pour in a can of tomatoes and green chilies along with some tomato sauce and butter. Stir and let it thicken up as much as you like. Perfect!

Here is a second take on the turkey stew above – and it’s just as scrumptious!

Also going in the pot are white vinegar, salt dried oregano, dried thyme and pepper. Let it boil and then simmer until it is at the consistency you want. Chunky goodness!
