Whole30 Roasted Garlic Soup

This creamy Whole30 Roasted Garlic Soup uses a massive amount of garlic – roughly 80 cloves! You may balk a bit at the amount of garlic used, but trust me, the flavor will have you coming back for seconds. As the garlic roasts, the flavor mellows, and it actually becomes sweeter than it’s raw form. My family and I love this creamy soup as a side dish, and we almost always have the ingredients on hand, so it’s easy to blend up a batch whenever we get a craving for it. Sub out the chicken broth for veggie broth to make this an easy vegetarian option.
