botulism from garlic in olive oil?

Kalyov | Feb 17, 201209:14 AM     20

I have heard that you can create botulism from putting garlic in olive oil. Is that just making garlic infused oil? Or does the same risk appear if I want to use it in a soup?

This is the recipe

Roasted Garlic Soup with Parmesan

26 cloves roasted garlic (2-3 heads)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 ¼ cups sliced onions
1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
18 cloves garlic , peeled
3 ½ cups chicken stock or 3 ½ cups vegetable stock
½ cup whipping cream
½ cup finely grated parmesan cheese (about 2 ounces)
4 lemon wedges

As you can see both garlic and olive oil are in this recipe. Can this create botulism?
Is it safe to put these two things together in the soup?

Thanks!
