Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I adore this soup - it's super simple to make, it's flexible depending on what you have on hand, and the garlic croutons are to die for. I'm not generally a big soup eater because I find it boring but this is a definite exception.

    This is an incredibly versatile soup base. I made the recipe through step two (basically roasting the garlic in olive oil, then cooking it in chicken stock), then added leftover shredded tomatillo chicken and chopped roasted poblano peppers. I left out the eggs and didn't make the croutons. Just the stock with the garlic was deeply infused with its sweet, mellow essence. Add any veggies, meat, or fresh topping according to season, and you'll have a wonderful light meal. Plus, you'll have extra garlic oil to use.
