Teri I think you must have made a mistake in your otherwise excellent roast garlic soup. There is no way you can add 6 tablespoons of flour. Thaty is enough to make a thick large sponge cake!
Do you mean teaspoons?
By the way have you tried stuffing a chicklen with 30 cloves of garlic. boikling them very quickly beforehand for about 3 minutes. TRhen you have tghis lovekly jmusy with chicken flavour. You can also add a couple of spoons of fine oatmeal and some sea salt. That crunchy texture is good exercise for the throat and you can't choke on Maldon salt!
