I thought I would really enjoy this. The soup itself was bland and had little real flavor apart from the added chutney and the depth from the sour cream. Maybe if it were made with stock or broth rather than water and a increasing the aromatics? *Made for ZWT*
- 1⁄2 cup thinly sliced leek white, washed well and drained
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 -2 teaspoon curry powder (as per personal taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 1⁄2 lbs yellow squash, sliced thin
- 4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 tablespoon major greys chutney
