    DeeCooks's Note:

    I think this is from a Gilroy Garlic Festival...it's a light, simple, wonderful starter that I serve in mugs before dinner. It's also our cure-all for winter colds. Since it is so simple, the quality of the chicken stock is crucial. I usually add way more garlic and cilantro than the recipe calls for, but heck, when EVERYONE is eating garlic, who cares?

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 quart good chicken stock
    • 1/2 cup sliced garlic clove (not TOO thin)
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 cup lime juice
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro (or chopped green onions if you are a cilantro-phobe)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Saute garlic in oil SLOWLY til very soft and golden.
    2. 2
      Add broth, bring to a simmer, add lime juice and cilantro.
    3. 3
      Garnish with a few whole cilantro leaves.
    4. 4
      Obviously this can be played with--I've tossed in chopped avocado, crushed tortilla chips, chopped tomato, etc. But the basic simplicity is its beauty.

      I don't imagine you'll be reading this review unless you LOVE garlic. It really is a must-try recipe for garlic lovers. I took DeeCook's instruction in step 4 as permission to add another of my favourite ingredients: 2 cups of fresh baby spinach leaves, which I added in the last 1-2 minutes of cooking. And I used a home-made chicken stock. We also loved the lime juice in this. A wonderful soup, DeeCooks! We loved it, so I'll be making it often. Thanks so much for sharing it! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2008.

      A cup of this is indeed sufficient and satisfying - the flavours of garlic, cilantro and lime are intense! Used cilantro paste (1/4 cup) instead of fresh leaves, and added one tomato chopped. This doesn't take long, what a speedy lunch along with some biscuits and melted cheese. Thanks!

      I love garlic soup, and this is a nice one, freshened by lime juice. I didn't have cilantro for a week, so, in the end I used green onions. The soup is really good with spring onions, though I am sure with cilantro it would be divine, especially with a bit of chopped tomato and some tortilla strips!
