Cold Weather Creamy Garlic Soup
What You'll Need:
½ cup Snowville Creamery whipping cream
26 garlic cloves (unpeeled)
2 tbsp olive oil
¼ stick of butter
2¼ cups of sliced onions
1½ tsp fresh thyme, chopped
18 garlic cloves, peeled
3½ cups of stock, chicken or vegetable
½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
4 lemon wedges
Prep Time: 45 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Place 26 garlic cloves in a small baking dish, adding the olive oil, salt, and pepper; toss to coat. Cover baking dish tightly with foil and bake until garlic is golden brown and tender, about 45 minutes. After the garlic has cooled, squeeze the cloves between your fingers into a small bowl, discarding the peels.
Melt butter in a heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and thyme, and sauté until onions are translucent about 6 minutes. Add roasted garlic and raw garlic cloves, sautéing about 3 minutes.
Add stock; cover and simmer until garlic is very tender, about 20 minutes. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender until smooth. Return soup to saucepan; add cream and bring to simmer. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the Parmesan into 4 bowls, ladle soup on top, and squeeze a lemon wedge into each bowl. Eat and be happy!
