Leftover beef  and chicken are delicious substitutions for the pork. Add a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the recipe for flavor.

*Stove top directions – heat 1 tablespoon oil until shimmering  in bottom of large saucepan. Saute carrots and onion in oil, over medium-high heat,  until starting to brown, about 3 minutes. Add all other ingredients to saucepan and bring to a boil.  Use fork to smash a few potatoes to help thicken soup. Reduce heat and simmer for 40 – 45 minutes until carrots are tender. Serve.
