First Snow & Simmering Soup

First snow of the season today here in CNY. Made me yearn for a bowl of hot 'n hearty soup.
Since I didn't quite expect the snow yet, I was caught unaware and didn't have the ingredients on hand, so I'm planning on making this for the weekend...It's easy to make but takes 2 or 3 hours to cook. That's a plus in my book as nothing warms up a house on a chilly day more than the delicious aroma of a soup simmering on the stove, especially if you aren't ready to turn up the thermostate yet!

Here's my recipe if you'd like to try it.
I suggest adding a green salad and a crusty loaf of dark whole grain bread for a most satisfying meal. You can make it with the beef or vegan style if you prefer. Either way, it is satisfying, healthy, and delicious!

  1. WoW, you had an early snow. Thank goodness we've yet to see any white fluff. But you can be sure that when we do, I will put on a pot of soup or stew, too!
