Cream of garlic soup

I love, love Garlic! And so does my husband!!!   Phew! Thank God! Or we would have a problem! Lol 😉

This is the first time I have made a soup predominantly using garlic as a base.  I was extremely surprised how even though, I used up to six cloves of garlic, it was not overpowering at all.  I think once the garlic stews in the vegetable stock it becomes incredibly gentle and sweet.  Not pungent at all!

The rest of the vegetables especially the carrot and potato really make it into a hearty filling and nutritious soup! One that is on our Favourite soups list for sure!
Make yourself a hot bowl, sit down and relax…Happy Monday! Much love D x
