Hi, Fredadacosta. I’m glad you liked it! Pasta is a good addition – just be sure to account for it. On cup of cooked pasta = 2 carbohydrate exchanges.
I just made this stew lovely . Also had one cup of pasta with it. Is that ok
I have also just joined and making this receipt now leaving out the olives and the chille as my family don’t like chille and olives. I hope it turns out alright. My name is Freda.
Hi I’ve just joined and I’m busy reading all the recipes as I plan my menu’s…
If 2 carrots serves 12, then 1 carrot serves 6… So for 1 person I’ll probably get 1 cube of carrot… I could easily eat a whole carrot just for me…
I’m guessing the potion sizes must be very small…
Hi, CindyTree. 1 Carb, 3 Protein, and 1 Fat, which translates to about 15 grams of carbohydrates, 24 grams of protein, and 5-15 grams of fat, depending on the leanness of the turkey you find.
Hi, KimandRob93. We don’t work with calories here, but rather with macronutrients. One serving of this particular recipe provides 6.6 grams of carbohydrate, 19.6 grams of protein, and 5.6 grams of fat.
Hi, Christine. Leftovers can indeed be frozen, and this can be quite a timesaver for a later meal. However, note also the “Fewer Servings” function at the end of the recipe information – you can click on that and reduction options will pop up.
Katrinka, this “Fewer Servings” function can help you as well.
Where is the fewer servings option it’s not on my screen?
Hi, samcode. That feature is currently being revamped and so is temporarily unavailable. In the meantime, you an use this tool to right-size the recipe according to your needs: https://www.trimdownclub.com/reducing-the-size-of-recipe.
twelve servings is a lot i am single so my question is should i cut down recipe or can leftovers be frozen and eaten at a later date
Does anyone know how many calories in one cup?
I thought a rutebega was parsnip so used that with chicken instead of turkey It was delicious I am going to try again with turkey
what is a rutabaga? A rutabaga looks like a large turnip. It’s usually purple-ish with white. Most likely waxed, and they’re yellow/orange colored on the inside. Pretty hard to cut through! But well worth the effort. My mom always made this the same way as mashed potatoes except without adding milk. Delish!
This sounds really good, but… we are a two-person senior household. The recipe serves 12. I can scale it back, but that’s additional work. It would be very helpful if the site offered a “scale” function that would allow for scaling the recipe to serve 2 or 4 for example. Plus, there is no indication whether it “keeps well in freezer” for future dinners. We don’t mind superb leftovers as long as it isn’t for 7 days running. 🙂 I understand Trim Down Club is focused on science-based weight loss (that’s why I joined), but I am a little surprised that there is no nutritional data for the recipes. Thanks for considering this comment and feedback.
A rutabaga, according to wikipedia is a swede. You learn something new every day!

1 cup of carrots is equal to 2 medium carrots
6 – 12 people ? How much is a cup of carrots?
My husband and I both really liked this stew–the spicy kick adds great flavor!
