Did you know that garlic is not only a great tasting ingredient, but it’s really good for you too! There have been studies that show how garlic can fight the common cold, lower blood pressure and promote healthy cholesterol. Garlic also contains antioxidants that may help fight the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Not to mention, it simply tastes great. So in the spirit of good health and good flavor, Chef Ann got busy in the POTG Test Kitchen and created a delicious Creamy Garlic Bisque (AIP) recipe. Sprinkling some Nutritional Yeast on top adds a nice cheesy flavor, definitely give that a try.
