carrot-wheat-soup recipe

 I just made this on Sun (it's amazing how creative one can be when faced
 with an odd cross-section of available ingredients). It is deceptively
 simple to make and delightfully flavorful. I make soup most every weekend
 in the winter, but this one merits sharing with all of you.
