Garlic Soup with Toasted Bread Recipe

4 first-course servings



4 slices firm bread (french or sourdough)

Vegetable cooking spray

6-8 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon each: ground cummin, dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cans reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth

Salt and cayenne pepper, to taste

Chopped cilantro, as garnish


Spray both sides of bread slices generously with cooking spray, cook in large skillet, over medium heat, until golden, about 2 minutes on each side.

Saute garlic and herbs in oil in medium saucepan until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add broth and heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and cayenne pepper. Place slices of bread in bottoms of shallow bowls, ladle soup over and sprinkle with cilantro.
