Garlic Soup – The cuisines of Eastern Europe are unique and at times similar to their neighbors.  The Slovak cuisine is a mixture of country cooking and culinary influences from Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic and Poland.  Slovakia’s fertile lowland and valleys produce the country’s staple foods, such as potatoes, wheat and a cheese called Bryndza.  While visiting Slovakia, we sample an assortment of delicious dumplings, roasted meats, colorful salads and appetizing soups.  One of our favorite soups is the garlic soup, perfumed, nutritious and tasty.  In the mountainous regions of Slovakia and Poland, the garlic soup is often made with chicken bouillon, potatoes, eggs or some cream.  Our Garlic Soup recipe uses vegetable bouillon, fresh garlic, croutons, grated cheese and parsley.  The vegetable bouillon is made with roasted parsnip, carrots, onion and spices.  The main ingredient is fresh garlic, the fragrant herb native to Asia that for thousands of years enhanced global cuisines.  The garlic’s pungent flavor, nutritional value and unmistakable fragrance make it an irreplaceable condiment.  Our Garlic Soup is sweet-scented and palatable, a perfect first course for dinner.
