What a great soup bluemoon. A hearty meal in one. We loved the flavor of the soup and wouldn't change a thing. Love the combo of onion, leeks, garlic & tomato. A nice robust and hearty soup, very filling and extremely satisfying. Comfort food at its best. The croutons & pecorino add a lovely dimesion of flavor. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.
This soup was quite good. It was a little one diminsional as the overwhelming flavor is definitely onion. But being an onion lover, that suited me just fine. I never had leeks before, and found I really enjoyed them. I didn't make the crutons, but the soup is good on all its own. So I'm sure the calorie/fat count is much less without the butter and bread. One reviewer called this hearty...I disagree as I found it a great light soup. For 123.
Mmmmm, loved this soup! A really strong and hearty soup and a must try for onion and garlic lovers. Only change I made was I didn't have pecorino so used some parmesan instead. I didn't have a non-stick pot large enough so went with a little extra olive oil and didn't have any problems at all with sticking.
This was too onion-y for me, but I would try again with a greater variety of vegetables.
Wow! This had such great flavour! Not for the feint of heart. The garlic, leeks and onion really pack a punch. This is a great soup and I hope many out there try it. A really good recipe.
