- 50 cloves of garlic (peeled and cleaned)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme (chopped)
- 2 large onions (minced)
- 6 cups (250ml each) chicken soup (only a base)
- 1 bunch herbs (parsley, thyme, bay leaves)
- 3 cups old bread (cubes)
- 1 cup fatty sour cream
Preheat your oven at 180 degrees. Then, mix 1/3 of the garlic with olive oil and wrap it in some aluminum foil. Next, bake this for an hour and a half then leave it to cool. In a pot, melt the butter and the olive oil. Follow by stewing the onions for 10 minutes. Squeeze the garlic out of oil and add it to the onions. Mix all the ingredients well. Then add the thyme, chicken soup and herbs.
Continue boiling at low heat then add the bread. Simmer for 5 minutes. The bread should soften. Strain the herbs then blend everything together. You should get a creamy mixture. Put the mixture back in the pot and finish by adding the sour cream. Season it with some salt according to taste.
