DIRECTIONS

  • Halve each garlic clove and remove the germ in the center; discard the germ. Thinly slice the garlic and place in a large saucepan.
  • Tie the sage, bay leaves, and thyme together with butcher’s twine, or bundle them in a piece of cheesecloth tied closed with twine. Place the herb bundle in the saucepan, along with the water (or water and broth) and the measured salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to low, and simmer gently for 30 minutes. Discard the herb bundle, keeping the broth at a simmer.
  • Place the yolks and cheese in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Add a few ladlefuls of soup to the cheese mixture and whisk until smooth. While whisking the soup in the saucepan, gradually add the cheese-soup mixture in a steady stream (the yolks will thicken the soup somewhat). Remove the pot from the heat and whisk for 1 minute more (if you keep it over the heat too long, the yolks may curdle). Taste the soup and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately, with a drizzle of olive oil over each portion.
