Mediterranean Garlic Soup Recipe

Ingredients

Cloves from 3 heads of McFadden Farm Garlic, separated and crushed

3 quarts water

2 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon pepper, freshly ground

2 teaspoons McFadden Farm oregano

2 teaspoons McFadden Farm thyme

¼ cup olive oil

3 eggs yolks

8 slices French bread, toasted

1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

 

Instructions

Combine the first nine ingredients in a large saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer covered for 30 minutes. Strain through a coarse sieve into a bowl, then return soup to the saucepan and set over a very low heat. Whisk the egg yolks in a serving bowl or soup tureen. Add oil in a slow thin stream while whisking until the mixture is thick and smooth. Gradually beat a cup of the hot soup into the egg yolk mixture. Whisk in the rest of the soup. Serve immediately, garnish with the bread and cheese. Serves 8.
