I haven't had the heart to tell the donks about the big snow storm that's reported to be descending on us this week. They'll moan and groan about "having to" stay in the barn with their heads peeking out the open front. As we all know these three little donka-doos don't particularly like the snow. Except for the lightest of snowfalls. That is permissible.
Usually we turn to thick, dense, hearty soups in the cold winter months. This soup is a bit lighter for those times dense isn't calling to you. I've actually had it for breakfast when the flavor combo just sounded right. And it's vegan!
