  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
  • 3 
carrots, thinly sliced 
into rounds
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 
small yellow onion, 
finely chopped
  • 2 to 3 
cloves garlic, 
finely chopped
  • 2½ tsp chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1½ cups 
+ 2 tbsp white whole-wheat flour, divided
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups 
chopped or shredded cooked turkey (TIP: You can use both dark and white meat.)
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt, divided
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup organic unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 
 and chilled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp 
chopped fresh 
flat-leaf parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large ovenproof skillet on medium, heat oil. Add carrots, celery and onion and cook, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and rosemary and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle 2 tbsp flour over vegetables and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in broth, turkey, peas, milk, ¼ tsp salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer gently until thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk remaining 1½ cups flour, baking powder and remaining ½ tsp salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until it is the size of small peas. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk and parsley. Add to flour mixture and stir just until no white streaks remain; do not over-stir. Drop by 1/3 cup rounds onto turkey mixture. Transfer to oven and bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center of biscuits comes out clean, about 15 minutes.
