We ended up fighting over the last dregs of soup - this is that good. And that's without the spinach, which I completely forgot about. The peanut butter is not really identifiable but adds a creamy undertone to the whole. The sweetness of the leeks and sweet potato, the spiciness of the harissa - this is just wonderful.
