Loving both garlic and lime, we knew we'd love this soup, but for sheer deliciousness it exceeded our expectations, so it's certainly a soup I'll be making often, especially since it's so quick and easy to make. Do use the best stock you can in this. I used my Vegetable Stock and added a sliced leek and a minced onion to the garlic (just lovethe yummy blend of those three together). I also added the suggested cooked chicken, making this a wonderful one dish meal which we thoroughly enjoyed with warmed, crusty ciabatta rolls. Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT 5.
A nice, light summer soup. I went with a green theme, using diced tomatillos in place of the tomatoes, added some green chilis, and some minced jalapeno. I also added some shredded roast chicken breast which was great. This was best at room temperature. Next time I will use less oil for frying the garlic, as it ended up floating to the top of the soup.
I made half a recipe, using a single very large tomato and bottled pre-minced garlic. Not having to mince the garlic myself meant there was hardly any work and the process took only about half the 30 min time indicated in the recipe. I did also add the cayenne Susie suggests in her introduction. A wonderful no-fuss light soup!
oh wow! i knew this soup was going to be good as soon as i smelled it!!! it sure is tasty! you got the lime juice just right!!! i am definately going to be making this soup again!!! thanks so much for such a wonderful recipe!! :D
