Quick Garlic Soup
This recipe can be prepared a day ahead and can easily be doubled or tripled. I garnish each serving with a dab of sour cream. By adding chicken and rice, you can turn it into a main course.—Kathy Schrecengost, Oswego, New York

Everyone loves this soup when I make it. I leave the chicken in and add barley to make a main course meal. I serve it with delicious, moist tea biscuits.
