roasted garlic potato bisque // scape pesto

roasted garlic potato bisque // scape pesto

i should rename this post "the worlds cheapest soup"

one of the easiest & tastiest soups i have ever made

i could eat this every day and would be a very very happy girl

smelling like garlic may not win me many friends, but at the very least i would have a belly full of warm delicious soup

truth: i have never roasted a head of garlic

until this past wednesday that is

shameful i know

what took me so long? for some reason i had it in my head that roasting garlic was hard, time consuming- you know all those little excuses you come up with

well, truth be told roasting garlic couldn't be easier

first things first
find that perfect garlic clove and cut it half or slice the top off

i decided to try it both ways - my personal preference is to slice the top off

drizzle with olive oil

wrap in tinfoil

roast in the oven for 40 minutes

there are only a handful of ingredients called for in this recipe

russet potatoes being one of them

in addition to garlic and potatoes - coriander is added for some extra flair

homemade scape pesto is added for color adding another complex layer of flavor

once the garlic has been roasted simply squeeze from the bottom
- the garlic cloves should slide right out

  6. My family and I preferred this dish very much. It was very simple and speedy also. The main thing somewhat inconvenient was expelling the garlic mash after it was simmered. Tasty dish. Online advertising Service - AgmusMedia
