Garlic Bread Soup
What more convincing do you need than hearing the words “garlic” and “bread” in a soup recipe? It’s essentially garlic bread heaven, turned into a creamy, velvety soup. Round this out into an entire meal with a pepper green salad and toasted bread for dunking. A crisp white wine alongside wouldn’t hurt, either. Shopping tip: Pre-peeled cloves are standard at grocery stores now, but if you can’t find them, try this old-school tip—separate the cloves from their heads and place in a bowl. Top with another bowl, hold the two together tight and shake as hard as you can for about 20 seconds. Amazingly, it removes almost all the peels from the garlic in record time.
