Leek and carrot soup

      The traditional leek and potato soup is a popular recipe with the leeks. But as I had just paired potato and watercress here, I decided to go for a different combination. Thus this soup with leek and carrots. I actually loved the slight pungent smell of leeks when cooking and I knew the soup was going to be spicy and delicious and certainly healthy with the carrots. I loved the addition of white pepper for the mild heat. On the whole , we loved the simple and hearty soup.

Leeks- 3 large sliced

Carrots- 2 chopped into thin pices
Potato- 1 chopped into pieces
Salt to taste
White pepper- 2tsp or more if you want it more hot.
Olive oil- 1tsp

     Heat oil in  pan. Add the ginger garlic paste followed by the chopped leeks and saute till they turn soft. next add the chopped carrots and potato and cook them till soft. Cool and blend it to a puree. Return the puree back to the pan. Add 2-3 cups of water with salt and white pepper. Mix well and bring it to a boil. Serve hot with some bread.
