Number of Servings: 6


    4 garlic heads
    4 tbs olive oil
    3 tbsp white flour
    4 cups chicken broth
    1 1/2 cup fine egg noodles, broken into bits
    thyme, fresh or ground


Pre-heat oven to 350.

Cut four heads of garlic in half making tops and bottoms. Pour olive oil on the bottom of a oven-proof dish. Place each garlic head half flat in the oil. Roast the oven for about an hour or until the garlic is soft throughout and nicely browned. When ready, you'll be able to lift the top halves of each garlic head like a hat.

Place all the garlic cloves in large pot. Mop the oil remaining in the dish with the flour. Place oil, garlic and flour in the pot and mash with a potato ricer.

When the flour is thoroughly mixed with the oil, and not before, turn the heat on and fry for a minute.

Add 1 quart hot water or stock. It is imperative that you have a smooth oil-garlic-flour mixture before doing so, as it is the basis of the soup's thick consistency. If you miss this step you'll end up with a floury and very thin soup.

Flavor with a few herbs such as fresh thyme and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add fine egg noodles to the soup. Simmer just enough for the noodles to be cooked.
