Easy, garlicky soup. Good for a cold winter night. Paired nicely with crusty bread or croutons.

This was good. I did use jarred garlic because that's what I had, I'm sure fresh would have been better. I added red pepper flakes for heat and lemon sea salt at the end, that helped bring the flavors up.
