This dish was easy to fix and had a very Italian taste. We lived in Rome for a number of year and the flavor brought back many happy memories.
I had a craving for Garlic Soup, even though it is very hot here in NYC. However, your soup hit the spot and was delicuous. I liked the added touch using toasted bread (which I broke up into smaller pieces) and the parmesan cheese on top.
Delicious and easy...even my kids ate it and enjoyed it!
SURPRISE! This soup is not overpowering at all. It reminded me of the broth that is left after eating muscles.... my husband hates muscles, so this is a nice compromise. I did not puree the soup, had a bad experience puree-ing hot soup including burns all over my neck/face. We liked the chunks of soft garlic, also did not use cream (he is lactose intolerant) used greek yogurt instead (since he doesn't react to yogurt). It was delicious and DEFINITELY needs the bread. :)
Absolutely fabulous subtle soup! Even though it's April here it's still acting as though it is winter out, and this soup was just perfect for a night like tonight. The bread at the bottom did get a bit too soggy for my taste, but I'd also tried toasted bread croutons on top and those worked out much better. A good quality parm on top really elevated it, and I would make sure not to skip that step.
I thought this was a nice quick and easy soup to make. Thanks
This was one of the best soups I've made and really simple too. I didn't think 8 cloves of garlic would be enough, but it really was. I used home made vegetable stock, vermouth instead of the wine and missed out the salt and pepper. I was suprised how thin the soup was, and at first considered thickening it up with other veg, but once you start eating it, it seriously grows on you. Thanks Dee
This soup was good even though I probably used too much rosemary and my bread didn't stay toasted when in the soup. While I enjoyed it, hubby didn't. Because of that and the time that it takes to make, I will probably not make this soup again but am glad that I tried it. = )
This soup is FABULOUS!! Everyone really loves it. My husband said it was good enough to serve in a foofy-snooty restaurant. It was super easy and serves up very elegantly.
