Herb Stock or Soup
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Use this as is or use as the broth or stock when making any other soup or sauce, or truly enjoy sipping on a hot cup as if you were drinking tea or coffee.
1-2 heads of garlic, separated into cloves
Peel and smash the garlic cloves. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy bottomed stock pot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to simmer and cook gently for 30-45 minutes. Do not let it boil too vigorously, just a gentle simmer. Strain and discard the solids. Use as a stock for other recipes, or serve in flat soup bowls and some wonderful French bread or rolls. Sprinkle with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese, or use any other sauce as desired, such as a Frence rouille, etc. Or just sip it plain!!
