Taste Of Home – Pumpkin Vegetable Stew

It’s the second week of the Great Pumpkin Event with Taste of Home! Remember, you can win a fun prize from Taste of Home by leaving a comment with your favorite pumpkin recipe or over on our Facebook page!

This week, I wanted to share an easy savory pumpkin recipe – Pumpkin Vegetable Stew! Made as is, this can easily be vegan. However, I oped to add some beef stew meat to make this a full, hearty, meal. The other change I made was cooking this in my Instant Pot to save some time. It was delicious! My kids LOVED it and they are pretty skeptical when it comes to pumpkin. I loved the variety of vegetables in there and the simplicity of the dish.

I think the pumpkin is great in this, but it is a pain to peel and cube. To save some time, you could use pre-cut butternut squash!

Don’t forget – my friend A.J over at The Lively Cook is hosting a giveaway too! This week she made a Pumpkin Roll – check it out!

Pumpkin Vegetable Stew


  • 4 cups cubed peeled pumpkin or winter squash
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups fresh cut green beans (1-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • In a large saucepan, combine all the ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 40-45 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

    The picture is not the same as the recipe, even with the addition of the beef. Picture has no green beans or pepper but does have celery and carrots. My mother made a stew very similar to this as pictured (minus the meat) and I’ve been looking a long time for one similar (I was a child last time I remember having it and I’m a senior citizen now. The picture brought back Wonderful Memories. Now, I gotta go get a pumpkin!!
