Anyway, enough about my inability to take a decent picture of a bowl of soup.
I promise this soup tastes so much better than the pictures will lead you to believe.
Take a picture if you want. 🙂
This soup starts with 50 cloves of garlic. Actually I didn’t count them putting them in the pot, but just used a storage container I had full of peeled garlic cloves, and as I was cooking I moved them around and counted and there were exactly 50. WEIRD! Well, there were 50, but only 48 ended up in the soup as I ate 2. Sorry!!
(TIME SAVING TIP: if you can get already peeled garlic cloves, to me it’s worth the money to not smell like garlic all day and to not have to peel them)
Benefits of Eating Garlic:
Assuming you’re not following a low-FODMAP diet, garlic is a great thing to include in your meal plan because it’s been shown to lower blood pressure, help fight cardiovascular disease, fight off colds, plus it’s high in antioxidants. Combine garlic with parsley which is high in iron, and add in some bone broth and this soup is a powerhouse.
So, let’s get on with the recipe…
