Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 medium onion , finely chopped
  • 2 ribs celery , finely chopped
  • 1 carrot , finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 10 ounces Brie cheese , rind removed, cheese cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Peel off a few layers of the white skin on the garlic. Make sure you keep a few layers around to hold the head of the garlic together. With a sharp knife, cut the top off the head of garlic exposing a bit of each clove of garlic.
  • Place each garlic head in a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over the tops. Top with a pinch of salt and dash of black pepper. Seal the foil around the garlic. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes, or until completely tender when poked with a knife. Remove from the oven to cool.
  • After the garlic roasts, heat 1/4 cup of the olive oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and saute for 10 minutes or until translucent.
  • Add the celery and carrot and saute for 10 additional minutes or until tender.
  • Add the flour and saute for 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken broth gradually. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Peel the garlic and mash gently with a fork. Pour into soup.
  • Stir in the oregano and thyme.
  • Stir in the Brie in batches, melting the cheese before adding the next batch. Season with salt and pepper.

Notes

This soup can be partially made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill before adding the herbs and Brie. Reheat gently and stir in the herbs and cheese as directed.
