15 Min

There must be some truth to the old story that garlic wards off evil spirits. Know why? 'Cause the smell of Great Garlic Soup brings a happy, hungry crowd running to the dinner table!

What You'll Need

  • 7 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 4 slices stale or toasted bread, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 scallion (green onion), chopped

What to Do

  1. Coat a medium saucepan with cooking spray. Add garlic, and brown over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add broth, water, bread, and pepper; mix well. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer.
  2. Remove 2 tablespoons soup to a small bowl and combine with beaten egg. Using a fork, slowly stir egg mixture into soup, forming egg strands. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, until heated through.
  3. Ladle into individual bowls, top with scallions, and serve immediately.


Cut a garlic clove in half crosswise and rub over toasted slices of French bread for a perfect go-along.
