This tastes really good but I think the original recipe had an error. I think instead of 3 teaspoons of butter and flour, it is supposed to be 3 tablespoons of each. Three teaspoons would be one tablespoon anyway, and would barely thicken this much liquid. I made it as the recipe stated at first anyway, but then had to thicken it with corn starch. I used chicken boullion and water instead of the broth, and 7 cloves of garlic. It could definitely handle more garlic in it. Very good once the thickening was adjusted.

Easy to make and the taste is wonderful, I LOVE GARLIC and I put in 40 cloves of garlic and it turned out just the way I like it. I did just slice the garlic and did not mince it and of course with that much garlic I used 3tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of flour,and my cans of milk are 12 ounces and the broth cans were about 15 ounces, anyway it turned out GREAT.

At first I thought it was a bit bland, but after I kept eating it, the flavor seemed to sneak up on me! This would probably be a nice comforting soup for a cold (garlic is good for a cold, right?) I used 6 cloves and would try more next time. Used chicken broth 1/2 cup heavy cream and the rest skim milk and added salt to my bowl and a few dried minced onions. I added 1/2 T cornstarch to the broth too. Edited to add that it isn't a thick creamy soup, like potato soup. It's more like a broth soup with some milk in it. Maybe adding potatoes would thicken it up?
