Curried Apple and Leek Soup ~ Autumn Apple Party #SundaySupper

Come autumn and the crisp cool air just feels so good in the mornings.I’m enjoying this transition of the weather and the lovely warm and comforting foods that come along with it!Talking about autumn, its also the season of Apples!.This lovely fruit is one of my most favorite things to cook/bake with and I can think of so many ways to use them in my sweet and savory creations.So when my friend Cindy from Cindy’s Recipes and Writings suggested ‘Autumn Apple Party’ as the title for this #SundaySupper I jumped with excitement :)

I’m bringing a savory item for this event and its already becoming a family favorite, going by the verdict of my 4 and 9 year olds :)Its my creamy Curried Apple and Leek Soup that has so many varied flavors that tickle your tastebuds in just the right way.I found the original recipe at All Recipes and added my own twist with the bacon and paprika! The soup is slightly acidic from the Granny Smith Apples,with a slight hint and heat of the spices combined with the creaminess of the potatoes. The flavors further elevate with the garnish of the salty, crisp bacon!One bowl full of goodness for this Fall~

  6. What a fabulous fall soup! Love the apples and leeks!!!

  7. This soup sounds perfect for snuggling up in a warm blanket by the window on a fall day. I saw that you referred to bacon as rashers? Do you live in the UK? I had a friend from Ireland call sausage rashers. Is it the same thing?
