Ingredients

  • 6 heads of garlic
  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • salt and pepper
  • bite-sized chunks of good day-old bread

Method

Peel six heads of garlic and place in a pot with a litre of chicken stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer until the garlic is soft - about 40 minutes. Pass the garlic through a mouli or a sieve, then mix it back through the stock and season with salt and pepper. Reheat and serve with bite-sized chunks of good day-old bread thrown in.
