  • Summary

    This is my favorite garlic soup of all. It is wonderful and each bite is as memorable as the first. This garlic soup differs from the ordinary garlic soup as it is hearty but also elegant. It is the kind of soup a person craves when recovering from a cold or a broken heart. It has cured a number of hangovers over the years although scrawled above the recipe I have written “Do not attempt to make with a really really bad hangover!!!!” – and I heed that warning, so plan ahead (I am pretty sure it means not to make it with a real bad hangover if you have to also make the stock). The combination of garlic, herbs and cloves is magic; the tomato juice adds zip and the unctuous egg yolk enrichment is balanced by the pasta’s pleasant, soothing note. This will cure whatever ails you….For an even heartier entrée; place a poached egg on each croûte before ladling the soup over it. Wonderful! This soup is best when made with my Browned Vegetable Stock recipe (#150683), you could use other stock, but it would be a real shame…. a real shame…. so heighten your experience and make the stock as well… you won’t be sorry. For a fine-but-not-fussy meal you’ll be proud to set before anyone, try this soup with THE Salad (“the” Salad Recipe #150702) … because you can never have too much garlic! LOL! Finish with a fruity dessert like a really good baked apple made with brown sugar and served with gingerbread and a dollop of yogurt….. yummy!
