Leftover ham and a turnip in the fridge… this turned out so yummy, I had to share!!


  1. 2 Cups cooked ham, cut into small pieces
  2. 1 raw turnip, diced
  3. 2 Cups, 16oz, organic beef stock/broth
  4. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1 diced zucchini
  6. 1 diced yellow squash
  7. 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  8. 2 tsp Tumeric
  9. 2 tsp black pepper
  10. Thickener, if desired (I used 1 Tbsp water & 1 Tbsp cornstarch)


  1. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in saute pan. Add turnip and garlic. Saute until turnip is slightly browned.

  2. During step 1, add stock to a large soup/saucepan. Heat on medium.

  3. Add cooked/leftover ham pieces and turnip mixture to stock. Bring to a mild boil.

  4. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil, zucchini, squash, black pepper and turmeric to saute pan and saute just until cooked, slightly translucent.

  5. Turnip should be tender after about 20min on a mild boil. When tender and cooked, add thickener if desired, and boil 2-3 minutes more.

  6. Turn off heat. Add zucchini/squash mixture, stir well. Let sit for a couple minutes and serve.

  7. Enjoy!!
