garlicky basil soup

1 Nov

Didn’t turn out so awesome. won’t make it like this again.

Simple soup to cure a cold (could be divided into fourths).

1/4 cup olive oil
40-60 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups uncooked brown rice
24 cups water
2 Tbsp salt
1 bunch fresh basil, stems removed, chopped (or dried to taste)
juice of four lemons

Heat olive oil over low. Add garlic and saute until well browned, stirring often, so as not to burn. Add rice, saute 5 min longer. Add water and salt. Bring to boil, then simmer for 1 hour, covered. Add lemon juice and basil. Puree some, all or none of the soup together dependent on your preference. Adjust seasonings as necessary.
