Cream of Garlic Soup

I was watching the show The Best Thing I Ever Ate and they were talking about the best garlic dishes they have ever had. Someone on there showed this amazing looking garlic soup. I thought to my self, I must try that. So after looking over different garlic soup recipes on the web this is what I came up with.

This soup had the most amazing sweet garlic flavor you can imagine. It's not pungent garlic, but sweet. In other words, you won't sweat garlic for the next year after eating this. But, if you don't like garlic, I mean really like garlic, you may just want to pass on this one.

3/4 cup of garlic cloves
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup vermouth (you can substitute any white wine)
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup peeled potatoes (some recipes use bread cubes instead, could be worth a shot)

  1. Mash garlic into a paste. I use my mortar and pestle, but a food processor would work.
  2. Add garlic and oil to your pot and cook garlic until it begins to color, stir often. Don't burn it!
  3. Add chicken broth and vermouth.
  4. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes.
  5. Add milk, cream, and potatoes and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.
  6. Enjoy the smell of garlic that has not permeated your home!
  7. Puree soup in a blender and then return to your pot to simmer.
  8. Simmer for another 30 minutes or longer.
  9. Ladle into a bowl and top with croutons.
  10. Enjoy!
