“This recipe is from The Garlic Lovers' Cookbook. A lady named Jo Stallard won first place at the Gilroy Garlic Festival back in 1980 with this recipe. I am listing the recipe as it appears in the cookbook. I have seen this recipe around the 'net, however, one key ingredient is being left out: Paprika. I think it makes a big difference in the flavor. I make it exactly as written, with the following substitutions: I use a can of Northern beans instead of garbanzo, I use red bell pepper instead of green, and I use fat free half and half instead of whipping cream. It is the most delicious soup I have ever tasted! I make it at least once a week. Great way to get your family to eat their veggies!”
