Roasted Potato & Garlic Soup

Found this in one of my cookbooks:

Roasted Potato & Garlic Soup

4 medium red potatoes
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
2 tsp. snipped fresh rosemary or 1 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
1 bulb garlic
1 Tbst. olive oil


1 ( 14 1/2 ounce ) can chicken broth
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup half and half or light cream
1 recipe Homemade Croutons (see recipe below) (optional)

*Peel and cube 2 of the potatoes. Cube remaining potatoes, leaving skin on. Place peeled potatoes on one side of a 9x9x2 inch baking pan and unpeeled potatoes on the other side. Sprinkle onion and snipped rosemary evenly over all. Peel away the dry outer leaves of skin from bulb of garlic. Leave skins of cloves intact. Snip off the pointed top with scissors, leaving the bulb intact, but exposing the cloves. Place the garlic bulb, cut side up, on top of the potatoes. Drizzle olive oil over all. Bake, covered, in a 400 degree oven about 50 minutes or until garlic cloves feel soft adn potatoes are tender; cool slightly.

*Squeeze the garlic bulb to remove the paste from the cloves. In a blender container or food processor bowl, combine about half the onion, garlic paste, and peeled potatoes, and halft the chicken broth, all of the flour, and the pepper. Cover and blend or process till nearly smooth.

*Pour the pureed mixture into a medium saucepan. Stir in the unpeeled cooked potato, remaining onion and broth, and half and half. Cook and stir over medium heat till slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. If necessary, stir in additional half and half to make the soup the desired consistency. To serve, ladle into soup bowls. If desired, top each serving with Homemade Croutons and a sprig of rosemary.

This looks wonderful! I love soup. My family hates it (weird people!) so I make it all for myself. I bet my Mom would like this one, she is always talking about the potato soup her Mom made. Think I may give this a whirl soon.

YUM - I always say that a "simple" soup is the best soup.

The soup sounds delicious, and that's a very interesting method. Thanks for sharing, Sizzlin.
