Garlic soup recipe - Directions
Peel garlic cloves and cut them to tiny pieces.
You can use garlic press if you want, but I think the soup will taste better if you use knife.
Roast the garlic on hot oil.
Add herbs. Can you smell them?
Stir all the time. Be careful, don't burn the garlic and herbs, roast them for just about 1-2 minutes, as long as the garlic doesn't become dark yellow.
Add water with bouillon cube or broth (chicken or vegetable bouillon cube or broth).
If you decided to use wine, now is the time to add wine too.
Add pinch of salt and pepper (or chilli if you really like it hot).
Bring to the boil and simmer for about ten minutes.
Now add water with flour or pre-made bechamel.
In a glass mix 1/4 cup of cold water and two tablespoons of flour. Stir until you get even mixture and add it to the soup.
You can add the flour directly to the soup, but it is more likely that the soup will become lumpy.
Bring to the boil again and simmer for about two minutes.
Now you can add sweet or sour cream. Stir again.
And the soup is done.
You can serve with any sort of pasta, cooked diced potatoes, bread cubes or croutons. Or you can just serve garlic soup and slice of bread with it.
I prefer bread cubes.
They are really easy to make. Just cut bread slices into cubes and put them in the owen (one day old bread is better than fresh, it doesn't crumble so much).
It will take about 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F until they became crispy.
When bread cubes are done, put them in plates and pour garlic soup on them. You can add some fresh herb leaves as a decoration (parsley for instance).
Tip: If you used bay leaf, remove it before serving, because it is not edible.
And don't forget to sprinkle grated parmesan on top of the soup.
Don't eat this soup
or important meeting.
