... it's mean to be summer. But it's wet and miserable and I'm cold! So I think soup will be a good idea for lunch. Something warm and hearty like leek and potato.
This is an old time favourite recipe of ours from a cookbook by Claire Macdonald. Pretty much a standard leek and potato but with a teaspoon of medium curry powder added whilst frying the leeks and onions. The resulting soup doesn't taste of curry but has a lovely warm kick... just what you need on a wet and miserable August summer day!
