Garlicky Artichoke Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by briosgaid

From the Stinking Rose Restaurant in San Francisco, CA. Very simple, hearty, and delicious, not to mention delightfully garlicky. If using as a main dish (served with bread), it serves six, as part of a full soup/salad/bread/entree/dessert meal, twice that, I think. I wasn't really watching the clock while I made this; if you don't count roasting the garlic, then it takes an hour, give or take 15 minutes.

This sounded so good, but just didn't work for us. I should have used more cheese and less onion. Will probably not make this one again,
