44 Clove Garlic Soup

I have never uttered the words, "that is too much garlic."  I think I might have kind of a problem.  I firmly believe that garlic makes everything taste better.  So when I discovered this recipe on Smitten Kitchen, I knew I had to give it a shot.  Forty-four cloves of garlic does sound like a lot, but a majority of it is roasted first, and the flavor is mellow.  However, if you are not a lover of garlic, this recipe is definitely not for you. 

I baked a few crescent rolls, and husband and I had this for lunch.  It is still rainy and not all that warm here in the Bay Area, so soup is still comforting.  One recommendation I would make is to not bring this to lunch with you anywhere public (school, work, any place people have noses).  This is a meal best enjoyed next to people who already like you and are bound to still be with you in some way after the soup is eaten.  Enjoy!

I used to be a garlic addict until I realized it was the culprit of many a bloat. What is it with food intolerance these days?

I have an unhealthy obsession for garlic. Seriously, it makes everything taste wonderful! This soup sounds incredible, and yes, I agree that its something best to eat in the comfort of your own home :)
