Happy French Friday! This week for French Fridays with Dorie, we made a simple, wholesome soup intended to cure anything that ails you, from a cold to a hangover. It’s called Côte d’Azur Cure-All Soup.
There isn’t much to this soup. The main ingredient is a whole bunch of garlic. The cloves are thinly sliced and cooked in equal parts water and chicken broth for 30 minutes to soften and mellow it. A bouquet garni of fresh sage, thyme, and bay leaves is simmered along with the garlic. When the garlic is done, 3 to 6 egg yolks are whisked in with a generous amount of grated Parmesan cheese. Drizzle each bowl with a bit of olive oil and serve!
There isn’t much to say about this soup, except we liked it! It isn’t really meant to be served as a meal, but I did anyway. It’s really meant to sip when you are feeling under the weather. It was much more flavorful than it looks, and very “warming”. I would definitely make this if we found ourselves fighting colds or the flu.
I hope all of you out there have a wonderful weekend!
