Winter has not been too kind to me. The two weeks preceding this one were filled with frigid temperatures and nearly a foot of snow. At least I have had a cuddly kitty to keep me warm. And soup! Glorious soup. This recipe is from Vcon and as usual I had to deviate from the recipe a tad. While the recipe called for adzuki beans, I opted to just save the money and use red beans. It worked out just fine and the difference went undetected.
