    I don't remember where this recipe came from. It's a good one, especially if you love that roasted garlic flavor, and I'd love to give proper credit.

      simply delicious and so easy to prepare. i wanted to serve this tomorrow, chilled, but my family was drawn into the kitchen by the wonderful aroma of roasted garlic, and had to have it hot. we enjoyed it very much. i plan to take some cold soup to work tomorrow and wiil cut some fresh chives into it. i also added freshly ground white pepper. great recipe

      I hate to give a poor hating but this soup was like a normal potato soup. I expected a stronger garlic flavor. But the roasted garlic flavor did not come through at all.

      Easy to make and very yummy! I made ahead the garlic the night before to cut prep time. It was great as is, although I think next time I'll leave in a few potato chunks just for more consistency.
