Garlic works in any recipe in my opinion. I double the recommended garlic almost every time. its great for your digestion to boot!

Thanks for your comments on this recipe. If you'd rather leave out the garlic, that's fine - the great thing about vegetable soup is it's easy to make it your own. If you would prefer a smoother texture, you can use a stick blender to make it smoother before you serve it.
