This was developed using a Jane Brody recipe from her Good Food Book as a guide. My husband loves turnips and the flavor was just right, not overpowering. The color of the soup is beautiful and truly tastes as good as it looks!

  • 1 small onion, sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
  • 2 small white turnips, peeled and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 3-4 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • winter squash (I used butternut) - peeled and diced (about 2 cups)
  • 4 cups broth (I use veggie broth - homemade or a brand called Better than Boullion)
  • 1 cup low-fat milk or plain soy milk
  • salt, if needed, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste


  • Combine all veggies and garlic with broth in large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, partially cover the pan, and simmer until the veggies are all tender (about 10-15 minutes).
  • Transfer the veggies and broth to a blender or food processor, doing this in batches if necessary, and puree them.
  • Just before serving, reheat in pan over low heat and add the milk and seasonings. Do not boil.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
