Re: Bob Bowersox's Unbelievably Good Garlic Soup

It sounds like a good thing to have when you have that first bit of sickness coming on. I might do Greek yogurt instead of the cream.

Loakimono, I frequently substitute low fat plain Greek yogurt (Fage) instead of sour cream on baked potatoes.

Re: Bob Bowersox's Unbelievably Good Garlic Soup

I wonder if this would be a good pasta sauce minus the addition of the bread??

Re: Bob Bowersox's Unbelievably Good Garlic Soup

I've made this soup every year for over 20 years. I use my Vitamix to blend the sautéed mixture and then add day old French bread slowly and blend to the consistency I want. The more bread the thicker the soup, the less bread the thinner it is. It is a delicious soup and our family loves it. I will be making it again soon. {#emotions_dlg.wub}

Re: Bob Bowersox's Unbelievably Good Garlic Soup

I just remembered. I took a full crockpot of this soup to a soup and sandwich luncheon at our church last year. When I said I brought garlic soup many people said they wouldn't like it. I suggested they at least try it. Those who did loved it. It was a big hit! My crockpot was empty at the end of the luncheon.

There are always six or seven soups at the luncheon. I knew people who didn't want to try the garlic soup could choose from many other kinds. Some people tried just a small serving and then went back for more! Some even asked for the recipe.

This was the first thing I made from that book. We love it. Waving Hi to BB2. Thanks for reminding me of this one. I have company coming on Wednesday through Sunday and I am making your Baked Penne with Italian Sausage and White cheese sauce. Thanks for that one too!!! I really love that recipe.

Re: Bob Bowersox's Unbelievably Good Garlic Soup

I'm enjoying the responses and ideas you all have contributed. Anika and Tiny, thanks for your excellent 'reviews'. It's nice to "see" both of you again; we have a few years behind us now, don't we?

I don't have an answer for the question about it being good as a pasta sauce, BooBoo. I'm sorry. But you could try it and give us a report. Smile

I really don't know since I've never tried it as a sauce. However, it might work if you used just a small amount of bread, leaving it a thinner consistency (see post 13). If you try it let us know how it turned out.
