Garlic Breath Soup

17 Nov

Poor little baby Zizi cat hated this soup night. But our new buddy Tater-tot loved it! Especially because he got to lick the bowl. The bowl of rich garlic goodness. This soup is a nod to our vampire friends Edward and what’s-her-face from Twilight. Or New Moon. Whatever. You know. I should probably know. I can probably take a swing through What Would Justin Bobby Do and figure it out.

Nods Bella and Beau.

Okay soupies, time to start seriously thinking about the great soup pot day coming up, that’s right, A Year of Monday’s Soup Anniversary Gala. The date should be sometime in January, details will follow, but these are a couple things that should be on your radar in the meantime:

  • Review this blog: Take a stroll back to your favorite soggy recipe; was it Veggie Detox (it actually was, I have analytics and that is our most popular soup– you alcholoholics, you), or African peanut soup (that was MY favorite soup), or Lime Soup (Alayna?). Either way, check out our past hits and remember all the good times we had together. Remember when the blender broke? Classic soup memory.
  • Make your request early! If you have a soup you really want to make (you will bring this soup to our party in a soup pot… that’s another thing, you might have to buy a soup pot)… email one of us and we’ll cross that one off the list. All the soups must be different!
  • Start singing and tapping your toes: We are currently looking for songwriters, poets and dancers to help us write and choreograph the group “We Aren’t Afraid of Soup” song that we will videotape and then repost on our blog and it will quickly go viral.

So let us know who could help us out. I’m not joking about any of this. At first Alayna thought I was and then she saw the soup ladle sparkling in my eye and knew. Knew I was serious. Souperious. And when you’re souperious nothing can stop you.

Bad Breath Soup
  • Roughly chop 3-4 onions and two heads (that’s right, HEADS, not cloves) of garlic and saute in a sprinkling of olive oil and about 3 tablespoons of butter on low
  • Add chopped fresh parsley, rosemary and thyme (we cheated and used dry thyme) and cover, stirring occasionally, letting it cook for about 30 minutes
  • Add chicken stock or vegetable broth and bring to a boil
  • Cube half a loaf of french or otherwise delicious bread and add it to the pot until soft (add more broth if it’s too chunky)\
  • Blend and serve over the leftover pieces of bread
  • Try to avoid sitting to close to strangers
