This was one of the best soups I have ever tasted! Rave reviews from all my guests and it was easy to make. (Longest part was peeling all that garlic!) Fabulous!

Fantastic soup, both my Husband and I are fans. Great way to use up extra garlic, and yes, smash method is the way to go! Froze leftovers for a quick and tasty meal later. Will definitely make again.

Yummo! Very easy, quick soup. I added a leek I had in the fridge. Found that 2 heads of garlic was about right. I calculated the broth at 5.5 cups and that seemed about right. Blended it all together in the pot with the good ol' submersible blender.
