Savory Soup Topper: Fried Garlic and Nuts
Our favorite thing about this warm, savory garnish is the sizzle it makes when you drop a spoonful into a bowl of soup. The flavor is pretty spectacular, too.
Fried garlic and nuts make a simple, yet bold, topper for soups. Just heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet, add sliced garlic and coarsely crushed nuts like walnuts or almonds, and fry, stirring constantly, until fragrant and golden. (Don’t take your eye off the pan; the mixture can quickly burn and you’ll wind up with a bitter, rather than savory, nutty flavor.)
