Transforming leftovers

This idea was inspired by leftover ham, but I think it would work for turkey or chicken as well.

Start with dicing an onion, mincing some garlic, and chopping a few carrots.  Saute that in olive oil until the onions are translucent.

Then add a few cups of stock or broth -- I had chicken stock on hand.  I cut my ham into small pieces and added it in.

Then I simmered that all for an hour or so.  It doesn't get really thick, but it does reduce a bit. I was going to add a bag of frozen peas, but then I forgot!  Oh well.

I served it with jasmine rice.  Some of us in our family ate it as soup and the rest of us used it as a generous topping for our rice.  Either way, we were all happy!
