A really, really (really) simple soup my girlfriend always makes me when I'm under the weather. It's a nice tweak on the vegetable-boullion-with-pasta-star-soup I normally request. From "Vegan Planet" by Robin Robertson.
- 10 garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 5 cups vegetable stock
- 1⁄2 cup star shaped pasta or 1⁄2 cup other tiny pasta
- 2 tablespoons dry sherry
- Place the garlic and olive oil in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
- Transfer to a large pot over medium heat and cook until very fragrant, about 3 minutes, being careful not to let the garlic brown.
- Stir in the stock and season with salt and cayenne to taste.
- Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain and divide among 4 soup bowls.
- When ready to serve, add the sherry to the soup, ladle into the bowls, and serve at once.
Really soothing and comforting. This will be a "go to" the next time we have an icky sick bug visiting our home. My only change would be to use a little less oil. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This is just wonderful! A real comfort dish. Thank you.
This was a nice simple soup to have on a cool night. It was easy to make, and we both felt it was in the comfort food category. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
