"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" — TLYONS

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
This recipe was not to my liking.
I must admit, the first time someone suggested I try garlic soup, I thought it sounded awful. I tried it a few years ago at a tapas restaurant, and though it was delicious, I promptly forgot all about it. Recently a coworker brought a huge bag of peeled garlic into work that she was trying to get rid of (after purchasing way too much at Costco!). I brought home about 30 bulbs of peeled garlic not knowing what the heck I was going to do with it - then I remembered garlic soup. Came across this recipe, but I used chicken stock instead of bouillon, and tossed in all of the extra garlic I had. It was just wonderful. Reminded me exactly of the soup I had tasted at the expensive tapas restaurant....and cooks up in no time!
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 amount of thyme and rosemary to this with pepper and salt and it was fabulous. Thank you!
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.
wonderful soup, maybe next time ill try onion with it, thank you!!
I usually don't comment but this was bland and tasteless enough to take the time to tell other people not to waste their time.
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 appetizer). I used 4 cups chicken broth and 2 cups of vegetable brother (chicken broth shortage). For those who called the soup bland, I don’t think they prepared the garlic right. If it isn’t cut up enough, you won’t get the flavour out. I crushed then minced the garlic. For those who are wondering ½ cup of garlic is about 2 complete flours of garlic minced (which is the amount I used). So… yummy.
