Cream of Leek & Pear Soup

CREAM OF LEEK & PEAR SOUP (adapted from a recipe I found in a french recipe magazine called "5 ingrédients - 15 minutes")
3 leeks, white part sliced
6 pears, diced
2 tbsp. Epicure's Mango Curry Dip Mix (or curry powder)
5 potatoes, peeled & diced
6 c. chicken stock (6 c. water + 3 tbsp. Epicure's Chicken Bouillon)
1/2 c. cream
salt & pepper
2 onions, thinly sliced
6 slices of bacon, diced

In a large pot, heat some oil over medium-high heat. Cook leeks and pears until soft, then sprinkle with curry seasoning and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a frying pan, heat some butter over medium heat. Add onions and cook until carmelized. Remove from pan, and add chopped bacon, cooking till crisp. Garnish soup with carmelized onion and bacon.
This soup was deeeeelicious!
