Creamy Garlic Soup

While this soup simmers, the great garlicky aroma will fill your kitchen! We love the toasted garlic bread floating on top of a rich and creamy bowlful. It would be a terrific first course for most any meal.

    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.
