  • 1 Head garlic
  • 1 tb Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tb Balsamic vinegar; or brandy

3 c Vegetable broth
1/2 c Dry white wine

1/2 Loaf bread; see note
1 Clove garlic; cut once
Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c Grated Parmesan cheese
1 tb Garlic chives; minced

Preheat the oven to 350øF. Squeeze the softened garlic from the skins
into a saucepan, and add the broth and wine. Heat to a simmer over
medium-low heat and cook for 15 minutes. While cooking, make the
herb toast. Bake the bread slices on a baking sheet until crisp but not
golden, 6 to 8 minutes. Rub the bread with the cut sides of the garlic
clove, then brush generously with oil. Sprinkle on a thin layer of the
Parmesan cheese and chives. Bake until the cheese is melted, another 5
minutes. Serve immediately with the hot soup. Substitution for the Chinese
garlic chives: 1 clove garlic and twice as much volumn of fresh chives.
