Roasted Garlic and Potato Soup

Yield: 4 servings

Preparation Time: and Total Time: 1 hr, 15 min



Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Wrap garlic in foil and place on middle oven rack. Bake 45 minutes, until garlic is tender. When cool enough to handle, unwrap, cut top off garlic bulb and squeeze the garlic from each clove; discard the papery skin.

In a large saucepan, over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and red pepper and cook about 10 minutes, until onion and pepper is tender, stirring frequently.

Add broth, water, salt, thyme, black pepper and roasted garlic and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 10 minutes allowing flavors to meld. Remove from heat. Use an immersion (or stick) blender to puree the contents in the pan.

Return pan to stove top and whisk in instant mashed potatoes. Over low heat, cook about 3 minutes, just until thickened. Stir in milk and continue to cook over low heat until soup is hot.

To serve, spoon into serving bowls and top each with a dollop of sour cream and dried or fresh thyme.

Note: Soup can also be served cold. After stirring in the instant potatoes and mixture has thickened, remove pan from heat. Stir in the milk, cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, until well chilled.
