Soup with Carrots and Lean Pork

I love soup!  Is there anything better than a hot steaming soup full of nutrients and vitamins on a -30C cold day?!  Well, maybe, stew or chicken noodle soup, but I am not sick.  I just needed something to prevent flu and colds.  Carrots ensure vitamin c and carotene, lean pork adds flavour and protein in the mixture.
