Garlic Soup

Rated as 4.07 out of 5 Stars

"Simple yet delicious. Cook garlic slowly to bring out the sweetness (the longer it simmers in the broth the better). I serve a bowl of this with a few grilled skewered shrimp laid over the rim of the bowl and crusty bread as a starter. Everyone that tastes it will want the recipe. This recipe is even better if you use a low sodium prepared chicken stock in place of the water and chicken bouillon"

I made mine with chicken broth instead of water and bouillon cubes. I also added some fresh spinach right at the end, really good.- LNP

I really enjoyed this quick garlic soup. By cooking the garlic for a long time, the flavor mellows out instead of the strong garlic taste some people expect from garlic soup. I added a small a...

I made this soup yesterday to help get over the bug that’s been plaguing me. It doesn’t look appetizing but it’s very good (however, I wasn’t hungry for a 2nd bowl immediately… it’s more of an ...

This was fab... I make this recipe a lot. You can all ways add your own special ingredents. I used spinach, mushrooms,more chicken gradules etc. This is really just like egg drop soup.

Delicious soup. I fried the garlic only until golden, but the soup was still rich in flavour. Word of advice though, do whisk the eggs briskly into the soup and keep whisking until the soup is c...

I made this soup with the chicken stock instead like other users suggested and added spinach leaves to it, it was delicious! I might try adding some green onion to it next time as well for a lit...

This soup is fabulous. I used a large can of good brand chopped tomatoes. I also used a cup of the juice from those and only 5 cups of water. Thanks to TLYONS!
