Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C). Cut the top off whole garlic to expose cloves and place on a piece of foil. Drizzle with 1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil and wrap in foil. Roast until soft, about 25 min.

  2. Heat remaining oil in a stock pot or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until lightly golden, about 4 min. Pour in wine and reduce by half. Add broth and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 15 min.

  3. Squeeze out garlic and mash with a fork. Stir into soup along with half the thyme and rosemary. Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish each with remaining herbs.
