Pungent garlic takes on a sweeter, more mellow disposition in this comforting, simple soup by the one and only Mr. James Beard. While the recipe calls for 30 cloves of the powerful allium, it softens into a creamy and aromatic version of its former self after simmering in a flavorful bath of chicken stock, fat, and spices. Egg yolks and fragrant olive oil are whisked in the final stage to give this inviting soup body and richness—and served in a big bowl along with some crusty bread, these basic pantry ingredients are transformed into a warming weeknight meal.
