Still life, garlic

It’s coming into cold and flu season down under.

We made this last night using a recipe from “Super Soups” by Michael van Straten.

Bread and Garlic Soup

5 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium head of garlic,

split into cloves, peeled,

and finely chopped

4 thick slices of wholemeal

bread (crusts removed), made

into breadcrumbs

1.5l or 55 fl oz vegetable stock

Half a handful fresh oregano

or 2 generous pinches of the dried herb

4 medium organic eggs

Heat the oil gently in a large pan. Add the chopped garlic and sweat slowly, covered for 3 mins.  Tip in the breadcrumbs, vegetable stock, and oregano.  Keep covered and simmer for two minutes, adding more stock if the mixture gets too thick.  Beat the eggs.  Add to the pan and simmer very gently for two more minutes.

We added some freshly grated parmesan and a couple of squirts of tabasco.

Oh and the breath issue doesn’t seem to be too bad but I’ll let you know when I get home from work today.
