Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1½ cups chopped leeks (white part only)
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. curry powder
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 cube chicken bouillon
  • 2 cups fresh chopped Portobello mushrooms
  • 1 oz. dried porcini and morel mushrooms, soaked overnight
  • 1 Tbsp. sherry
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped chives

Directions

  • In a soup pot, heat the oil on medium. Sauté the leeks, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes; shake the flour and curry powder on them, and stir until everything is coated. Add the milk and the bouillon cube. Bring almost to a boil, reduce heat to low, and whisk the mixture. Add the fresh mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Drain the soaked dried mushrooms and squeeze out any excess moisture. Chop them roughly and add them to the soup, cooking for 1 more minute. Stir in the sherry. Ladle into soup bowls and top with the chopped chives.
