 This is mostly the recipe in the Savory Way (minus the 2T butter, of
 course).  We really liked this soup.  It is very very garlicky (which
 I think is a plus, your milage may vary).  The fun thing about this
 soup for us was that many things in it came from our garden.
 Garden Garlic and New Potato Soup
 	2 heads fresh garlic (if you have a garden, just go and pull
 			      them out)
 	1 lb. new potatoes
 	2 branches thyme
 	1 bay leaf
 	2 T chopped parsley
 	salt (to taste)
 	1.5 quarts water
 	sprigs of basil, dill, or lovage for garnish
 Thinly slice the cloves of garlic from the two heads (might want to
 peel'm first.)
 Quarter the potatoes, and slice the quarters into 1/4" slices.
 Put all the soup ingredients into a pot, and bring to a boil.  Simmer
 for 45 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked.
 Adjust the seasonings (you may have to add salt), and smash some of the
 potatoes against the side of the pot with a spoon if you want thicker
 Serve garnished with basil (or whichever herb you've chosen) and lots
 of pepper.
 The instructions say that this soup also works with dried garlic (the
 usual way you buy garlic bulbs) and regular potatoes.
 Hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
