  • 10 shallots, unpeeled (about ¾ lb.)
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped onion

  • 3 cups fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups (½") cubed, peeled, baking potato (about ¾ lb.)
  • 1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 cup evaporated skim milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. To prepare soup, remove white papery skins from garlic heads (do not peel or separate cloves); cut off tops, leaving root ends intact. Place garlic in a shallow roasting pan. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over garlic; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover with foil. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes.
  3. Add shallots to the roasting pan. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over shallots; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and bake at 400°F until tender and browned (25 minutes). Allow garlic and shallots to cool.
  4. Squeeze garlic to extract pulp; peel shallots. Discard skins. Set garlic pulp and shallots aside.
  5. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat; add onion. Cover and cook until lightly browned, stirring occasionally (15 minutes). Add garlic pulp, peeled shallots, and wine. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered (5 minutes).
  6. Stir in broth, potato, and thyme; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until potato is tender (20 minutes). Cool slightly.
  7. Place half of potato mixture in a blender; process until smooth. Pour pureed mixture into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining potato mixture. Or use a hand held immersion blender right in the pot.
  8. Return pureed mixture to pan; stir in milk, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper into pureed mixture. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
