Garlic Soup with Parmesan Croutons

I love garlic. The more the merrier. So how could I not try this soup!? This is perfect for when you're sick or for a gloomy rainy day.

An added bonus, you will have a lot of garlic infused oil left over. Don't throw it out. It can be used for future yumminess!

3 garlic heads, peeled
5 c. chicken broth 
extra virgin olive oil
4 - 6 thyme sprigs
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. butter

slice sourdough bread
Parmesan cheese, shredded

1. Place garlic and 4 sprigs of thyme in a small pan over medium-low heat. Add enough oil to just cover the garlic.

2. Cook until garlic is tender enough to squish with a spoon (about 30 minutes).

3. Spoon out garlic into a pot. (Save the olive oil). Crush garlic with a spoon.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of the garlic oil, butter and flour. Cook on low heat for about 2 minutes.


5. Add chicken broth, remaining thyme, salt and pepper to taste.

6. Boil for 15 minutes. 
7. In the mean time drizzle some garlic oil over the bread. 
8. Place on a baking sheet and top with Parmesan cheese. Cook under broiler until cheese is browned.

9. Dripper-do the bread in the garlic soup and stuff face!
