Author Notes

I’ve always been a fan of soups; mostly because it requires only one pot to make and I’m lazy. This soup is super rich and flavorful. There is a just a hint of garam masala and the brie adds a nice creaminess to the soup. I would like to say that this is my attempt at Indian fusion. I think it’s a hit! Try it for yourself! —Milk and Cardamom

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 leek, white part - finely chopped
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
