  • Garlic Soup by spryte

    Posted August 10, 2005 05:45 PM

    I was craving garlic... so in a garlic recipe search I found this soup and made it the other night.... All I can say is YUM!! Hector (my SO) said it could be served in a foofy snooty restaurant!

    Garlic Soup

    A wonderful rich garlic soup that is not overpowering! Served with a salad, crusty bread and a nice white wine, makes a lovely light supper.
    8 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 quarts chicken broth or vegetable broth
    fresh ground pepper (to your taste)
    1/2 teaspoon thyme
    1/2 teaspoon sage (or 2 leaves fresh)
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)
    1 pinch rosemary
    1/2 cup light cream
    3 egg yolks, beaten
    6-8 slices of toasted Italian bread or French bread
    1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese or romano cheese

    6-8 servings

    1 hour 20 minutes 10 mins prep

    1. Saute garlic in oil until slightly browned.
    2. Heat broth and wine until hot but not boiling.
    3. Add garlic, oil, spices and herbs, cover and simmer for 1 hour.
    4. Remove bay leaf from pot and puree soup.
    5. Return pureed soup to pot and continue simmering.
    6. Add cream to egg yolks, then add a bit of soup and mix well.
    7. Add egg mixture to the pot and simmer for about 5 minutes or until heated through.
    8. Place a toast slice in each bowl, ladle soup over toast slice and sprinkle with cheese.
    9. Serve and enjoy!

    I used fresh herbs from my garden... I didn't have any white wine, so I used dry white sherry (or maybe that is wine... I don't know!) I toasted slices of a long thin baguette. Since the slices were pretty small in the bowl, I put two in each bowl... I sprinkled the freshly grated parmesan & romano over the toast and ladled in the soup.

    Y U M!!!!
