According to a study that was conducted by the Washington University, garlic is more effective that the 2 most commonly used antibiotics. Here we will show you the recipe for this magnificent soup and you can try it and see for yourself how amazing it really is.

First of all you need to turn on your oven and preheat it up to 350°F. Then clean the garlic and spread the cloves on an aluminum foil. Spray them with olive oil and wrap them up nicely. Put the garlic in the preheated oven and leave them to cook for 90 minutes.
In the meantime, take 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter and put them in a sauce pan. When the butter has melted add the diced onion and cook it for about 10 minutes.
Once the garlic cloves have cooled down, add them to the onion. Also you can add in fresh thyme and herbs of your choice. Now you need toreduce the temperature and add in the bread crumbs or cubes.
