“I think this is from a Gilroy Garlic Festival...it's a light, simple, wonderful starter that I serve in mugs before dinner. It's also our cure-all for winter colds. Since it is so simple, the quality of the chicken stock is crucial. I usually add way more garlic and cilantro than the recipe calls for, but heck, when EVERYONE is eating garlic, who cares?”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 quart good chicken stock
  • 12 cup sliced garlic clove (not TOO thin)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 cup lime juice
  • 12 cup finely chopped cilantro (or chopped green onions if you are a cilantro-phobe)

Directions

  1. Saute garlic in oil SLOWLY til very soft and golden.
  2. Add broth, bring to a simmer, add lime juice and cilantro.
  3. Garnish with a few whole cilantro leaves.
  4. Obviously this can be played with--I've tossed in chopped avocado, crushed tortilla chips, chopped tomato, etc. But the basic simplicity is its beauty.
