White Bean with Roasted Garlic Soup

Serves: 7
Total Calories: 63


2 cups navy or white beans (cleaned well)
4 - 5 cups water or stock
1 bulb fresh garlic
2 tablespoons oil
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 large onion (diced)
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste


Soak beans overnight in water. Drain and rinse well in colander. Place in a soup pot with water or stock. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1–1 1/2 hours, skimming the surface from time to time.

Separate the bulb of garlic into individual cloves, keeping skin on. Toss garlic in oil and wrap loosely in aluminum foil. Roast in a 450° oven for 10–15 minutes or until cloves become soft. Cool.

Add prepared vegetables, bay leaf, thyme, and salt and pepper, to the beans. Squeeze the cloves out of their skins and mash with a fork. Stir into the soup. Simmer until vegetables are tender. Add more liquid, if too thick. Serve with unseasoned croutons.
