Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Chop the leek, garlic, and cabbage.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the leek and garlic, then sauté 3-4 min until softened. Grate the ginger and add it to the pan. Stir in the curry and cook 1 min with stirring. Lower to heat, then add the cabbage and cook 10 min with occasional stirring.
  3. Pour in the broth, bring it to a boil, cover and simmer until the cabbage is fully cooked, about 15 min. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Take the pan off the heat, let it cool down a few minutes then purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Adjust the seasoning, then ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish with sour cream and chopped scallions, then serve (warm or at room temperature).
