Garlic & Onion Soup

Having a cold, running nose, head ache, fatigue the past couple of days, I was craving something comforting.  Soup.

With the gastric sleeve surgery soup can be complicated.  Liquid with solids are hard to process, for me anyway.  I wanted something smooth, not chunky like chicken soup.  I came across several Garlic Soup recipes that I found on Pinterest.  I combined or modified them.  Most used 5 large bulbs of garlic.  I only had 1 complete bulb so that is what I roasted.  I liked it, and it was comforting.  David liked it as well.  Subtle flavors.

I roasted the garlic I had in a baking dish with olive oil and covered in foil.  It sweetens the garlic, and adds a nutty flavor.
1 stick of butter, and 3 onions sliced and place in a Cassoulet.  Add salt and pepper.Saute until the onion is translucent.  Add 3 teaspoons of dried parsley, 1 teaspoon thyme, 1 teaspoon oregano and a bay leaf.  Add peeled garlic.Add 4 cups of beef stock.  Bring to simmer, and cook for about 10 minutes.Place in a blender (be very careful – liquid will be hot, or use an immersion blender), and puree.  Add back to the Cassoulet, and add 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream.  Bring to a simmer. Serve with sliced Parmesan.  It did satisfy my craving for soup.

Hopefully it will add in my cold recovery.
