Creamy garlic soup

by | Aug 16, 2016 | Soups

“If everyone ate more garlic, the world would be a happy place” – this saying comes from the famous food author Ruth Reichl and I completely agree with her. Garlic is one of the world’s healthiest foods and one of the greatest treasures of mankind.

Eating one or two gloves of garlic a day really might keep the doctor away, as it benefits health on multiple levels. Garlic is well known as a natural health remedy that has long been used to treat various diseases.

Garlic soup is so simple and easy: just some onion and garlic, a little flour, chicken stock and heavy cream. This flavourful soup makes a hearty first course or a light main dish. It will probably keep vampires and others at bay (unless they have a serving).

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
