This soup is for garlic lovers, but the flavor isn't overwhelming, so really anyone would love it! Excellent served with some crusty bread on a cold autumn night. Instead of crotons, this is really good with some cheese toasts, too.

How To Make irish garlic soup

    To serve, place some croutons in each soup bowl, then ladle the soup into each bowl. For a bit of color, you can optionally sprinkle some finely minced parsley over each serving.
