Green Garlic Soup

The Soup That Will Cure What Ails You

This bright and brothy soup might look unassuming or even ascetic at first glance, but what it lacks in flash, it more than makes up for in flavor. It hails from New York Times writer and Chez Panisse alum David Tanis, whose produce-centric recipes seem to hit the spot without fail.

The next time you're hankering for a light but lovely meal — or feeling a bit under the weather — stop off at the farmers market and snap up some green garlic; in next to no time, you'll have a bowl of brothy goodness on your table.

Green Garlic Soup

Ingredients

  1. 7 cups chicken stock
  2. 1/2 pound green garlic shoots or ramps, thinly sliced
  3. 2 cups leeks, cleaned and thinly sliced
  4. Kosher salt
  5. Black pepper, freshly cracked
  6. Lemon juice, freshly squeezed, to taste
  7. 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  8. 1 baguette, sliced on the diagonal 1/2-inch thick
  9. Olive oil, for brushing
  10. 2 tablespoons chives, snipped into 1/2-inch pieces

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  2. Add the green garlic shoots and leeks. Simmer for 5 minutes. Check seasoning and adjust with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. (Soup may be made in advance up to this point, then reheated.) Just before serving, stir in scallions.
  3. While the soup simmers, brush the baguette slices with olive oil, and toast.
  4. Ladle into soup bowls, add sliced baguette (three slices per bowl is a good place to start), and sprinkle generously with chives.
