Roasted Garlic Soup

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Yesterday was a stock-making day. I had a bag of bones in the freezer and a crockpot at the ready to work hard for me all day, while I was off busy doing other things. The ending result was a gallon of delicious chicken stock. Once the stock was completed, I decided upon this simple yet utterly delicious soup. 

Roasted Garlic soup, delicious and so good for you with lots of garlic.

Roasted Garlic Soup
adapted from:  Take This Dish and Twist It
by:  George Duran

2-3 heads of garlic (full bulbs)
2-3 t olive oil
2 T butter
1/2 c finely chopped onion
2 t paprika
1/2 t ground cumin
4 c rich chicken stock
sea salt
snipped fresh parsley
Garlic Croutons - see below, you can make these while the garlic roasts.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the top off garlic, wrap in foil leaving the cut edge exposed. Bathe the top with olive oil. Roast 30 minutes, set aside to cool.

Gently squeeze garlic cloves from the head, separating the head if needed to make it possible for the garlic to slip free of the skins. Slice the garlic, if desired.

While the garlic is roasting, you can make the Garlic Croutons.

Assemble the soup:

Melt the butter in a large pan, over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook slowly for 5-8 minutes, or until the onion is soft and translucent, do not brown. Add stock, paprika, and cumin. Bring to a boil, add garlic, reduce heat to simmer, simmer for 15 minutes. When using homemade stock, check for/and adjust salt.

Serve with snipped parsley and the croutons.


4 slices sandwich bread, crusts trimmed
1 T olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed with the back of a knife.

Warm oil over medium heat, add garlic and cook until garlic is brown, remove and discard. Add bread, increase heat to high, gently cook and stir until bread is coated with the garlic oil and golden brown. Remove to cool to paper toweling.

  1. Hi Melynda! Well, Garlic Soup is one of my absolute favorites and this version has my mouth watering this morning. I've linked up something from a newer cookbook today, Patty Melts. Thanks so much for hosting Cookbook Sundays!

  2. Good morning Melynda! I'm with Heather on garlic soup, it's one of my favourites too. I haven't made it in quite a while, but at one time I was making it a few times a month. Thanks again for taking over Cookbook Sundays - I know it's in good hands. :o) Oh, I linked up my Joe Froggers. Have a great day!

  3. That looks really good and I'm looking forward to visiting your participants. I hope to join later today or next Sunday. I'm backed up quite a bit

  4. Hi Melynda

    Thanks for picking up Cookbook Sundays! I'm a new GFC follower from Brenda's. I loved your post and look forward to getting to know you!

    I linked up my Sweet Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe (is it possible to expand the name field to more than 20 characters?) I ran out of room when typing it in!

    Have a fabulous week and I hope you'll join me at Create With Joy!


  5. Garlic is one soup I never had! Given my love of garlic I need to fix that. Your family is beautiful!

  6. Melynda-I was glad to link back to your site about my recipe for today.
    I love garlic in soups, and roasted garlic in soups is even tastier.
    Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe:D

  7. Hi Melynda,
    I am so sorry I am late, I didn't get the change memo, I am so glad to find all of you here at your home. Your Garlic Soup looks so delicious, yum! I guess I am in time for dessert and I brought it, a great Brownie Tart, Enjoy! Thank you for hosting and have a great week!

  8. I am thrilled that you are continuing this. It helps me check out the many cookbooks, I have.

  9. Mmmm. Roasted garlic soup. Perfect for this time of year when the weather is 75 degrees one day and 32 and snowing the next, like we just had. Did your honey like it?

    I finally got my post added. I regret it was late, and I am so glad you left the link open for a few days. I would have been sad if I hadn't participated.

  10. Hi Melynda, I'm late! I was away a couple of days visiting my dad, came back home and found 'problem' with my internet line for three whole days straight!
    I've linked a dessert cookbook recipe, a refreshing sherbet. And I like the sound of your Roasted Garlic Soup. Never tried it before, it is usually onion soup! Got to give it a try one of this days.
    Thank you for continuing Cookbook Sundays! Have a lovely day, Melynda.

  11. Hi Melynda, I've just linked up another recipe for Cookbook Sunday. Have a nice weekend!
