Soups and stews are basic, and the techniques are classic. Each is based on a flavorful liquid, such as stock or broth, and any additional ingredients contribute specific flavors or textures. They make wonderful vegetarian meals because they typically rely on affordable—even homegrown ingredients—such as hearty grains and vegetables.
Garlic Soup is a simple appetizer soup that makes the most of everyday ingredients. Serve with a slice of Tomato and Garlic Toast and green salad for a light lunch. Use high-quality ingredients; because this basic soup has few elements, each contributes substantially to its success.
