    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. 2
      Rub off some of the papery outer skins of the garlic heads but do not peel them or separate the cloves, leave the heads intact.
    3. 3
      Slice 1/4" off the top of each garlic head.
    4. 4
      Place the heads, cut side up, in a lightly sprayed or oiled baking dish.
    5. 5
      Drizzle 1/2 teaspoons oil over each head.
    6. 6
      Bake, uncovered, until golden, about 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Cool slightly then press the whole head with your hand all at once to release the garlic pulp.
    8. 8
      Place the pulp in a bowl and set aside.
    9. 9
      In a large soup pot over medium heat, warm the remaining oil.
    10. 10
      Add onion and celery and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
    11. 11
      Add reserved garlic pulp, stock, beans, basil salt, pepper and bay leaf.
    12. 12
      Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.
    13. 13
      Remove bay leaf and discard.
    14. 14
      In a food processor or blender (or better yet, an immersion blender, which is what I used), puree soup in batches.
    15. 15
      Return to pot and stir in half-and-half.
    16. 16
      Simmer until flavors are blended, about 5 minutes.
    17. 17
      Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley.
