17 ingredients

Shakespeare writes a long part about leeks in his play Henry V. This vegetable has been celebrated throughout history by everyone from Roman Emperor Nero to Ernest Hemingway. I invented this soup because I wanted to put my own flavors to this historical vegetable! I hope you enjoy it!
