Imagine this. I am 11, I come home from school. Grandma awaits with lunch for me. It’s garlic soup that I absolutely love. I eat 3 platefuls of it. I stink of garlic for next 2 days. The end.
No but seriously. Garlic soup by my grandma is imprinted deep in my memory and I tried to recreate it since I don’t have a recipe written down. In the first go I used potatoes (Why, I don’t know. Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me.) And in the second go KABAM.
While it was usually served with “zlate kroglice” which means golden balls in Slovenian (deep fried dough basically) I used croutons. So we are more international baby. Ok, let’s go to the recipe.
Garlic soup by my grandma
My childhood memory turned into a recipe. Simple garlic soup with lots of parsley.
- 1 head of garlic
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 l water
- 2 tablepsoons of corn starch
- bunch of parsley
- salt and pepper
- Step 1 Heat the olive oil in a pan and add finely chopped garlic. Cook it for about a minute or until it starts to get just a bit brown.
- Step 2 Add 8 dl of water and bring it to boil.
- Step 3 Mix corn starch in 2 dl of water and stir the mixture into the pot. Cook and occasionally stir for about 5 minutes.
- Step 4 Add salt and pepper to your taste. Add chopped parsley. Cook for 2 minutes more. Serve.
