Garlic isn’t just a flavor enhancer. It’s packed with health benefits. It contains compounds with potent medicinal properties, is highly nutritious, and boosts the immune system – perfect for warding off colds. When transformed into a soup, garlic’s intensity softens into a milder, sweeter flavor, making it palatable and surprisingly comforting. So forget about the garlic breath and let’s jump in. 


  • 3 Bulbs of garlic
  • Olive oil or butter
  • Onions and herbs for added flavor
  • Chicken or vegetable broth
  • A splash of cream or a beaten egg for richness
  • Croutons or stale bread for texture


  1. Begin by gently cooking the garlic in olive oil or butter, allowing it to become golden and aromatic without burning.
  2. Introduce onions and select herbs to the pot, sautéing them until translucent, which lays down a flavor base for the soup.
  3. Pour in your broth of choice and let the soup simmer, melding the flavors together into a cohesive, fragrant liquid.
  4. Right before serving, stir in a bit of cream or a beaten egg, which adds a luxurious creaminess to the soup.
  5. Garlic Soup is traditionally served with croutons or pieces of stale bread, adding a satisfying crunch or soak-up quality to the dish.
