WOW - I LOVE THIS SOUP! With a few small modifications: I used 2 large leeks (white & green parts) 3 medium potatoes and substituted one cup table cream in place of one cup chicken broth. I also added a little extra curry (personal taste) for more flavour. Served it with a salad and got amazing kudos!! Try replacing potatoes with butternut squash - just as fabulous!! Read More

Very tasty and hearty. A bowl of this and a hunk of bread and you have a delightfully flavorful and hearty meal. Rather than tasting the combined flavors it is more like tasting the apple leek and curry all at the same time...very neat! You will need to experiment with the size of the 2 apples and 3 leeks...the balance of flavors is easily swayed based on not only the quantity but also the strength of the leek and the ripeness of the apple. There is a lot of leeway before you go too far one way or the other though: don't let it worry you but make a note if you think it goes too far one way or the other when you make it the first time. Overall quite easy very tasty and hearty! Read More

This is an easy and fine recipe. Having said that some folks found that it tasted like apple compote. I didn't... I thought it had a three tiered flavor starting with apple having leek in the middle and curry as a pleasant aftertaste. You could still taste the apples rawness with the suggested times I'd probably cook them slightly longer next time... Read More

A tasty easy soup. I'd stick with non-fat yogurt for the garnish - lowfat was too thick and ended up clumpy. A bit more apple and/or more potato would be nice to balance the leeks better. Read More

This soup turned out awesome! I used a small butternut squash and two sweet potatoes in place of the regular potatoes and I added extra curry powder and some red pepper flakes to give it more of a kick. After I blended it I added (already cooked) Trader Joe's Brown Rice Medley to make it a full meal. Read More

Very tasty! The apple flavour really comes through to make this a very delicious soup. (The only thing I changed was to leave the peel on the apples: the soup was going to be pureed anyway and I had gotten fed up with peeling and chopping.) Read More

Though I'm not usually one for sour things this soup is really complex and when paired with a nice bottle of sweet apple wine it was awesome! Read More

This is the first time that I have tried making leek.But I dont see apple and curry powder go together well.Its ahealthy soup made some changes added 1 1/2 cups of broth and didnot puree it in blender.there were plenty of chunks of leeks /potato/but I could hardly taste apple. So next time I wont add apples.May be adding spinach and some tomatoes will work.I had mine served with plain cooked rice.thanks for a healthy soup recipe. Read More

I used all the ingredients as specified (except I used Free-range Organic Chicken Broth) chopped in my VitaMix before cooking then pureed after cooking. This may seem like a lot of extra effort It was worth it! All the ingredients blended very nicely together. Nothing over powering. Nice texture and flavor. We used our dollop of plain yogurt and served with fresh homemade rustic biscuits (daughter's recipe) and ice tea. Simple meal very filling and will have again! Read More
