Ingredients for Roasted Garlic and Yogurt Soup:

4 large cloves garlic, peeled

1 T olive oil

1 c fresh coriander leaves, coarsely chopped

1½ tsp finely grated orange rind

2 tsp cornstarch

1 16-oz container regular yogurt

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

8-12 fresh or frozen spinach-Parmesan cheese ravioli (op[tional, to convert to a main course meal)

  1. Place the garlic in small heatproof bowl; drizzle with olive oil. Cover with foil; bake in 350F oven for about 30 minutes or until tender. Scrape the soft garlic into a food processor with the coriander and orange rind; puree until finely chopped.
  2. In a saucepan, whisk the cornstarch with 2 cups of water. Whisk in the yogurt.
  3. Heat until steaming over low heat, stirring gently.
  4. Add about 1 cup of the liquid soup to the garlic mixture. Whirl until well-blended.
  5. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and heat through (do not boil).
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve hot (or chilled), as an appetizer soup in an assortment of shooter or shot glasses with a variety of other soups, garnishing with a parsley or coriander leaf sprig.

(Adding 3 or 4 cooked ravioli to each bowl will convert this delightful Roasted Garlic and Yogurt Soup into a main course meal.)
