Cream of Garlic Soup (Knoblauchcremesuppe)

Coming home from the Christmas holidays with no shopping in the house, the pickings are slim. But, there'll always be garlic, onion and for us coffee lovers: milk. This doesn't make sense yet, but bear with me. This soup is actually quite popular in Austria and as always, I am happy to bring the good news to America...

1 whole thing of garlic
1 medium onion
2 cups bouillon
2 cups milk
3 Tb flour
butter/olive oil
salt/ pepper
fresh parsley if available (I only had oregano, which was good, too)

Chop onions finely and saute together with minced garlic until soft, before adding bouillon and milk and bring to a boil. Add flour and stir constantly for about 10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste and add fresh parlsey. Done.
