    Mia in Germany's Note:

    This is a spicy garlic soup from Greece which typically is made during the winter months. Submitted for ZWT 6. If you don't care for too much garlic, only use 2 cloves :)

      This was a nice winter soup. I especially enjoyed the chewy fragments of feta. I also added a bulb of garlic, rather than 3 cloves (we LOOOVE garlic!) and I think next time I would roast them first. I was unable to locate arugula (poor herb selection at our grocery store), so had to leave it out, which makes me sad. I always try to stick to the recipe the first time. I served it with a loaf of fresh baked bread. Thanks for a very interesting soup, Mia. Made for PAC Fall 2012

      We like this soup. It doesn't have an intense garlic flavour, but sweet and tart. I did change the garlic to a whole bulb and cooked it down very slowly in some oil then followed the recipe. Made for ZWT 6 for Unrulies Under The Influence.

      I really liked the soup but DH didn't care for it. I didn't have arugula so I had to leave that out. Made for ZWT6.
