Creamy Roasted Garlic and Onion Soup

It’s hard to believe this Creamy Roasted Garlic and Onion Soup also happens to be dairy-free. But it is. With a combination of coconut milk, olive oil, fresh garlic, and onions, this healthy, savory soup is gluten-free and tastes like a guilty pleasure.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 bulbs garlic, peeled
  • Olive oil
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 3 1/2 cups bone or vegetable broth
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground or finely chopped thyme
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Onion salt and garlic salt, optional
  • Garnish with parsley or fresh thyme, if desired

Instructions

  1. Peel garlic cloves, place in baking dish, and drizzle with olive oil. Gently stir or shake in glass pan to evenly coat.
  2. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes
  3. Pull out of oven and peel any remaining skins that have come loose.
  4. Add olive oil to skillet.
  5. Add cloves and chopped onion to skillet and sauté until onions just turn slightly brown.
  6. In a blender, add coconut milk, bone broth, and sautéed garlic and onions.
  7. Blend until smooth.
  8. Add seasonings as desired.
  9. If needed, reheat soup in a saucepan until desired temperature is reached.

Notes

  • For best results, use fresh garlic. When the garlic is past its prime (getting soft, becoming pungent) it affects the flavor.
  • Add a tablespoon or two of melted coconut oil just prior to serving for a rich, buttery flavor.
