100 Garlic Clove Consommé or Soup Base

Ingredients

100 cloves garlic (roughly 2 cups of peeled cloves; you can buy them at many stores pre-peeled)

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp sea salt

6 cups bone broth or other good-quality broth

1 can coconut milk (not light)

2 Tbsp lemon juice

Additional sea salt to taste

Freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Method

First, roast your garlic: Preheat the oven to 350 F. On a baking tray, add garlic, olive oil, and half a teaspoon of sea salt. Stir, and place in the oven to roast until browned and caramelized, about 30-40 minutes. Check partway through to shuffle the cloves around for even roasting.

Once the garlic is roasted and cooled, place into a food processor with remainder of ingredients and blend to desired consistency. Add seasoning to taste.

Use this a flavourful base for chicken soup, vegetable soup, or even in place of water when cooking legumes or grain. Alternatively, this can be consumed as a light consommé to accompany a meal.
