Add paprika powder, cumin and chili powder and let it roast for 5 minutes. (Roasting the spices a very important part) Meanwhile, using the peeler, peel the carrot to make really thin slices. Add the carrot slices in the pot and roast for a while. Now it's time to add vegetable broth (1-liter hot water + 3 cubes vegetable stock), sliced leek, canned tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes.
