It's cold and rainy and blah ~ ~ ~
We need some warm comfort food.
A pot of warm beans with the smell of roasted garlic . . . I can sit and read a good book, while it simmers on the new gas stove.
Roasted Garlic and White Bean Soup
2 large heads of garlic
2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1# white cannellini beans
2 cups chicken broth
sprig of rosemary and thyme
Salt and pepper to taste
4 cups water
Soak dry beans in water overnight (or use canned white beans that have been rinsed). The next morning pour off the soaking water. Fill a large pot with fresh water, chicken broth and beans. Place several sprigs of herbs in the pot. Bring to a boil and cook over low heat.
Blend to a thick puree.
Pour this back into the pot and continue cooking until the beans are tender.
Y'all enjoy ~
