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!!

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!

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...
