She told me it would be easy to make, and since she is my cooking guru I believed her. As soon as I got home I searched for a Spinach Asparagus Leek soup recipe and made the first one I found.
This was my first time making soup and my first time cooking with leeks (and only the second time eating them, after that first bowl at Amelie’s).
It is my favorite meal in the world to prepare. Adding to firsts, this was really the first time that I made a meal with beautiful and fresh ingredients. Every time I make it I enjoy preparing each vegetable and enjoy it even more knowing that it makes such an amazing soup. This is perfect when paired with a fresh baguette or, in a pinch, Pillsbury makes a dreamy french loaf you can find refrigerated with their biscuits. Another great thing about this soup is you can adjust amounts of vegetables to suit your case; I usually add more potatoes and carrots.
