Garlic Scape Cous Cous Soup Recipe

One of my favorite things to make is homemade soup. This one was another new experiment based on what I had on hand. I planted a lot of garlic cloves in the garden, and wanted to find a use for the greens growing from them, so I came up with this soup.

I started by cooking one cup (dry) cous cous. Then I added a small handful of garlic scapes, thyme, and parsley, finely chopped. I started the soup with one pint of half and half and two cups of vegetable broth. I also added zest and juice of two lemons, one tablespoon corn starch (to thicken the soup), two chopped sweet potatoes, corn cut off three small fresh cobs, and a little salt & pepper. I brought the mixture to a boil for a few minutes, then cooked on medium-low for about an hour. The end result was very creamy with a unique taste!
