Golden Potato Soup with Roasted Garlic

Golden Potato Soup with Roasted Garlic

This luscious potato soup is creamy without dairy, sweetened with a hint of apple, and enriched with health-promoting garlic. Just add a salad and bread or muffins, and dinner is served.

When you crave a little warming comfort from the kitchen, Golden Potato Soup will make you glad that soup weather is here.

1 large whole head of garlic, or 2 medium heads
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
6 to 7 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup peeled and diced tender apple (such as Cortland or Golden Delicious)
1/4 cup dry white wine
3 to 4 scallions, thinly sliced
One 6-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained and cut into 1/2-inch squares
1 to 1 1/2 cups rice milk, as needed
1/2 cup Silk creamer
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place whole garlic head on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.

2. Heat oil in a soup pot. Add onion and saute over medium heat until golden. Add potatoes, apple. wine, and just enough water to cover. Bring to a rapid simmer, then lower the heat. Cover and simmer gently for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the potato is quite tender.

3. When the garlic is done, squeeze the soft pulp from the cloves right into the soup and discard the skins. Mash the potatoes in the pot with a potato masher until the base is thick and chunky.

4. Add the scallions, roasted peppers, and enough rice milk to give the soup a thick consistency. Stir in the creamer and simmer gently for 5 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 6 to 8.

Hmm, have to determine which Aussie potatoes to use instead of the Yukon Gold...time to investigate...

Not bad. I would omit the apples and use real milk, though.
