White Bean & Roasted Garlic Soup

Source: Vegan Fire and Spice
Make this a quick & easy recipe by roasting the garlic the day before!

2 heads garlic
2 TB oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
32 oz. vegetable broth
3 cups cooked white beans
3 fresh sage leaves
lemon juice to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves (at the pointed top), exposing the individual cloves of garlic. Place on a piece of foil & drizzle 1 TB olive oil over the top. Seal & bake 45 minutes, or until the cloves are softened. Let cool.
2. In large pot, saute onion in oil 5-7 minutes. Add broth, salt, pepper, beans, & sage leaves; simmer 5 minutes.
3. Unseal the roasted garlic & squeeze each clove to extract the garlic into the pot. Puree in batches in food processor & return to pot. Add lemon juice & enjoy!
