I know what you're thinking... garlic soup?!! 44 cloves?! But hold your reservations and give it a try. It's delicious! Somehow the garlic flavor is not overpowering and it has a hint of sweetness. Rose gave it a thumbs up. :)
I served it with 9-grain bread toasted on a panini grill and steamed broccoli.Smitten Kitchen. This being the first time, I made it as the recipe read. Well, mostly... I used half & half instead of heavy cream, dried thyme instead of fresh, and lemon juice from the bottle. Next time I make it I'm going to cut corners and not use so much oil and butter.
