This was my mom’s recipe for health when you are sick! I am so glad she shared this with me before it was too late. Garlic is always my go-to when I feel that I am getting sick, the more, the better, and the less cooked, the better too! There is a ton in this soup but it is quite palatable.
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2-3 heads garlic
6 cups light vegetable broth
3 medium potatoes, chopped into small pieces
Salt , Pepper and Garlic Powder to taste
Garlic Croutons or Chopped Chives, optional garnishes
In a medium soup pot, gently sauté the whole garlic cloves in olive oil without allowing them to brown.
Add the potatoes and cook for another minute or two.
Add the broth.
Simmer until the potatoes are soft.
Let cool then blend the soup.
Garnish with garlic croutons or chopped chives if desired.
*You can make the soup thinner with more broth or thicker with more potato if you prefer.
