Bonnie's Roasted Garlic Soup
Vampires Beware! My sister in law Bonnie makes this wicked Garlic Soup. It sounds dreadful - so much garlic - but it's wonderful.

2 heads garlic, left whole and unpeeled
4 1/2 cups Chicken stock, reduced
2 Tbps. butter
1 Tbsp fresh dill weed, chopped
3 slices whole wheat bread cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 c. dry white wine
salt to taste
1/2 c. grated provolone cheese
Preheat oven to 350' Cut tops off garlic heads so that the top of most of the cloves are visible. Place upright in shallow 8-cup casserole dish. Pour 1/2 cup of stock over bulbs and bake for 1 hour. let bulbs cool then squeeze garlic puree out
Melt butter in large fry pan. Stir in dill, add bread cubes and toss for 5 minutes. Set aside when crisp
In saucepan combine 4 cups of stock, the garlic puree, wine and salt. Boil. Pour hot soup into soup bowls. Add croutons and cheese. Broil for 3 minutes. Serves 4.
This is wonderful served with a salad and rolls. I swear it cures a cold.
