looks yummy! I'm in search of soup recipes now.. I have the stuff to make this..maybe this weekend. And I have the perfect accompaniment (albeit not the healthiest!)..Frozen Butter Biscuits. If you google the title..it will give you a link to the post on Spark. I like to add extra garlic and shredded cheddar (sometimes a little chopped ham or cooked sausage0 and green onions for a little more substance. Great for cold weather! I can't wait to try this soup!

"THE DOG KENNEL IS NO PLACE TO KEEP A SAUSAGE" DANISH PROVERB
1 head garlic 3/4 tsp. olive oil (extra virgin or your choice) salt and freshly ground pepper 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup chopped celery 8 cups stewed tomatoes, including liquid 1 bay leaf 2 tsp. dried basil 1 tsp. dried oregano 1 tsp. dried tyhme
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Remove loose, papery skin from garlic, leaving heads intact. Place garlic on a sheet of heav-duty foil; drizzle with 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and pepper.
2. Loosley wrap foil around garlic, folding edges securely. Roast until garlic has softened, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a plate where it can cool.
3. Open foil carefully and discard. Separate garlic into cloves. Squeeze soft garlic from each clove into a small bowl. Set aside.
4. In a large saucepan over medium heat allow remaining 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil to heat. Add onion, celery and roasted garlic. Cover and cook until vegetables soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, 1 cup water, 1 bay leaf, basil, oregano, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for a further 15 minutes, allowing time to blend flavors.
5. Using a hand blender, puree the soup until mostly smooth.
