Leek Soup with Smoked Paprika Parmesan Croutons | Game of Thrones

“Catelyn could not fault him for his lack of appetite. The wedding feast began with a thin leek soup…”

– A Storm of Swords, George R.R. Martin

This Game of Thrones Leek Soup is given a nice kick of flavour when topped with Smoked Paprika Parmesan Croutons. The entree/appetizer you need for your Game of Thrones party!

My appetite would be lacking too if I had thin leek soup in front of me. If I’m going to have soup (which, as we know, I avoid when possible), it has to be hearty.

Thick.

Flavoursome.

Which is why I’ve added smoked paprika parmesan croutons to the mix. I can’t get enough of smoked paprika (and dill, and basil if we’re talking favourite herbs here). I know the smoked bit is an ‘add-on’, but it reminds me of toasty cabins on cold winter afternoons, or late summer evenings in the forest lounging near a campfire, all in one sniff.
