Found this recipe in a book called Cook right for your type (about food for different blood groups). Sounded so interesting and is very delicious

Excellent flavour, simple to make, carrots really complement the leeks. Used lots of garlic as suggested, herbes de provence, salt and pepper. Served with a pork meat loaf. Vancouver BC
