This winter soup is the perfect soup for this season of the year. It is super comforting and delicious. It is made with leeks, mushrooms, and rice. I like to finish it with a drizzle of excellent olive oil and eat it with a good piece of bread. It is not yet that cold where I live but anyway, with this soup I feel I’m ready for the whole winter weather.
