Roasted Garlic Sweet Potato Soup with Parmesan-Baked Croutons

Yield: 4-6 servings

Preparation Time: 20 min; Cook: 1 hour 45 min



For the roasted garlic:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel most of the paper off the garlic, but leave the cloves intact. Trim the top of the head of garlic to expose the cloves. Drizzle with olive oil and top with salt. Wrap the garlic in a sheet of aluminum foil and roast for 40 to 50 minutes or until the center clove is easily pierced with a paring knife. Remove from oven, let cool and press the bottom of the clove to remove the garlic from the peel.

For the croutons:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In a mixing bowl, toss bread cubes with olive oil and parmesan. Transfer to a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

For the soup:
In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and shallot and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sweet potatoes, stock, and roasted garlic. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender. Using a blender, stick blender, or food processor, puree mixture (in batches, if necessary). Return mixture to the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with croutons and serve immediately.
