Roasted Sweet Garlic and Almond Soup
Preheat the oven to 400oF. Bake the garlic cloves for about 20 minutes or until soft. Break the bread into smaller pieces, then drizzle and soak in the milk.
Using a food processor blend the almonds until good and fine, and have almost stuck to the side of the bowl.
Throw in the soaked bread and the soft inside of the roasted garlic, add a little chicken stock or water and blend. When you have a fine puree, gradually add in enough stock or water to make a thickish soup consistency.
Finish by seasoning with salt and pepper, and a good drizzle of sherry vinegar and olive oil.You can garnish with some quartered green grapes mixed with chopped marjoram on top.
