New England is known for its hearty soups. I like to experiment with recipes (luckily I have a wife who lets me mess up her kitchen). I came up with this recipe the first year I grew leeks in my garden.

"Delicious! One of my family's favorites! I also add a little more curry for more kick, and sometimes I blend all of the soup instead of just one cup."
