Another soup recipe to warm up...

I left Boston last summer but brought back Boston's weather in Paris. Incredible!
Temperatures have been below 30 degrees for a week and we left the whole Boston's weather equipment in our house in the Loire Valley!
Not so many solutions to warm up : soups, soups and soups... or pot-au-feu, this will be for the next post.
Today's soup is a vegetable soup with a hint of curry. You'll have your "5 fruits and vegetable per day" portion.

You need for soup for 4:
- 1 leek
- 2 zucchinis
- 2 carrots
- 1 celery stalk
- 2 potatoes (baking ones, Idaho, Russet or all purpose ones like Yukon gold; if you're in France use "pommes de terre à purée", like monalisa or bintje)
- 2 or 3 tomatoes (you can use whole peeled tomatoes)
- 2 teaspoons of curry powder or curry paste
- salt, pepper
- Vache Qui Rit (processed cheese)

Peel and cut all the vegetables, put them in a pot full of water with salt, pepper and curry and bring to a boil until everything is cooked (about 30 min).
Blend all the vegetables with part of the boiling water (according to the texture you want) with 2 portions of Vache Qui Rit
Ready. Enjoy and stay warm...
