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.
