Cream of leek soup or “poro”, as we call leeks in Peru, is one of my mother’s favorite soups. I remember just how rico it was to sip this hot creamy soup during the cold, grey days of winter in Lima. I know that some people choose to serve this soup cold, but I prefer to serve it hot.
During this past weekend, I wanted to surprise my mother by preparing this soup that she cooked so often for me. Here I’ll share with you this easy and deliciosa recipe for “crema de poro.” I hope you enjoy it, buen provecho.
