Today I am bringing you a yummy soup recipe. I’ve been making this soup for quite some years now and it is a hit with my family. When I told my mom and sister I was making a batch of this soup my mom said she wished she lived nearer so she could have some and my sister asked when she could come get a bowl haha.
This recipe was inspired by a restaurant that’s no longer in Edmonton called That’s Aroma! They had a garlic soup on their menu and it was so tasty. So this is my version of that soup.
Though there is cream in the soup I wouldn’t classify this as a creamy soup since it’s not thickened. The cream just adds a good flavor and rounds it all out. I hope you make this Garlic Soup for your family and I hope they enjoy it as much as mine does 🙂
If you want to make this a vegetarian soup you could substitute the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
Ps this makes A LOT of soup! I use my biggest pot and it’s nearly full. I’d say it’s around 4L of soup in the end.
– 1 whole head garlic
– 1 large zucchini (or 2 small to medium)
– 1 onion
– 1 large green pepper
– 1 cup diced tomatoes (if canned drain off liquid)
– 1 can chick peas (540ml)
– 1 tsp dried oregano
– 1 bay leaf
– 2 L chicken stock
– 2 Cups whipping cream
– 2 tsp salt
– 1/4 tsp pepper
– 1 tsp olive oil
– Chop onion, put oil in big pot and sauté onion.
– While the onion cooks chop the zucchini and green pepper into about 1/2 inch pieces and set aside.
– Peel garlic and cut into thin slices.
– Add spices to the onion and stir.
– Add garlic to pot and stir for about 1 minute then add other veggies.
– If your using fresh tomatoes chop them about the same size as the zucchini and pepper; if your using canned diced tomatoes drain them then add to the pot.
– Drain and rinse the chick peas and add to the pot.
– Add broth to pot then bring to a simmer with the lid on and allow to simmer for about 30-40 minutes until the veggies are cooked.
– Add the whipping cream then bring back up to a simmer slowly.
– Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
*Note: the cream and broth will separate when the soup cools, just give it a good stir before warming and serving*
Thanks and until next time, enjoy your adventures!
