Garlic Chowder

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by John J. OSullivan

This is a thick delicious garlic-based chowder. I had a similar soup at a nearby "all things garlic" type restaurant. I made for St. Patrick's Day this year. It is *very* rich and creamy.

Good and easy. The garlic flavor in this is very very mellow despite the sheer volume of it. Really tasty winter soup, thanks for sharing!

  1. Roast the garlic bulbs and squeeze out the garlic into a small bowl. (If you don't know how to do this, go to Recipe #132617. It's very easy.).
  2. In a large pot, heat the olive oil. Sauté the onions, then add celery and leeks.
  3. Add the squeezed-out garlic cloves to the pot, along with thyme, potatoes, and chicken stock.
  4. Bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender (about 30 min.).
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Add cream and parsley, cook till "combined." Remove from heat and stir.
