Tomato-Garlic Soup

Recipe by NELady

From Like Grandma Used To Make by Reader's Digest, c. 1996. This has 10 cloves of garlic - because it mellows as it cooks, this soup has a mild, slightly sweet flavor.

Wonderful for us tomato-onion-garlic lovers! Served this before Recipe #212671 to help the B12 and iron do their thing. Very simple, I am sure to repeat this. Thanks for posting NELady! Made for Photo Tag.
