Method

Photo credit: G. Drakopoulos - Food Styling: T. Webb

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Place the 25 cloves of garlic (with the skin on) in a small pyrex or bakeware dish. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Cover with aluminum foil.
  • Roast for 45-50 minutes, until they soften and turn golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool. Press them between your fingers to release the aromatic garlic pulp from within the skin. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the onions and thyme. Sauté for about 6-8 minutes until the onions become translucent. Add the garlic pulp and the remaining 20 peeled cloves. Sauté for 3 minutes.
  • Add the stock. Cover pot and boil for about 25-30 minutes, until the garlic becomes very soft.
  • Beat the mixture in a blender until smooth. Return to pot. Add the heavy cream and season to taste.
  • Divide the parmesan between 4 deep bowls and add the soup.
  • Serve each bowl with a slice of lemon.
