Reviews for Creamy Garlic Soup
"Havnt tried this recipe yet but sounds good. ..but I would roast the garlic in oven before adding it to the soup"
"Nice flavor, although the family decided it wasn't garlicky enough. I was very disappointed in how thin it was.I do plan on tweaking it until it is how we like it. Thanks for the inspiration!"
"excellent taste with subtle undertones of the herbs. Already a favorite with my family and friends. I have to double the recipe when I make it as they always want seconds."
