Roasted Garlic Soup with Thyme Croutons Recipe

Ingredients
<br>- 4 whole heads garlic
<br>- 1 tablespoon olive oil
<br>- 1 (8 ounce) loaf French bread, cubed
<br>- 2 tablespoons olive oil
<br>- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
<br>- salt and pepper to taste
<br>- 3 cups milk
<br>- 1 cup heavy cream
<br>- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
<br>- salt and pepper to taste
<br><p></p>Directions
<br>step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat the heads of garlic with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and place them in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
<br>step 2: While the garlic is roasting, stir together 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the bread cubes, and stir to coat. Spread the cubes out on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes in the oven with the garlic, or until golden brown. Stir occasionally for even toasting.
<br>step 3: Once the garlic is roasted, cut the heads in half horizontally, so that all of the cloves are exposed. Squeeze both halves to release the roasted cloves into a medium bowl. Pick out any pieces of skin that fall in.
<br>step 4: In a large saucepan, combine the roasted garlic, milk, cream and thyme. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 10 minutes, then puree in a blender. Strain through a sieve back into the pan. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls, and top with croutons to serve.
