Creamy Roasted Garlic Greens Soup

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 large garlic head, halved horizontally

Olive oil, for drizzling

Salt and pepper

3 cups vegetable broth, chicken broth or water

1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped

1 bunch Swiss chard, stemmed and chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 cups fresh spinach leaves

1 cup loosely-packed fresh parsley

1 onion, chopped

1 cup cashews

Directions:

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the garlic, cut side up, on a piece of foil; drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Close the foil to seal. Roast until softened, about 1 hour; let cool slightly then squeeze out the cloves.

Place the vegetable broth in a soup pot. Add the kale, chard, spinach, parsley, onion and cashews; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.

Working in batches, place the soup mixture and roasted garlic in a blender; process until smooth. Return to the pot and season to taste with salt and pepper.
