The recipe never mentions when to add the garlic, I added it with the potatoes and veggie broth.

Also I would change the verbiage to "pot" instead of "pan" bcause I started with a pan and realized I wouldn't be able to add 4 cups of veggie broth to it.

Other than that the recipe it so easy and the soup is DELICIOUS!
