    Normaone's Note:

    Garlic mellows considerably when it's roasted, so don't be alarmed by the large quantity of it. This soup is delicious and can be served as a first course for dinner or as a main dish for dinner or lunch with the addition of some realy great chewy bread. Enjoy!

      Rich and creamy. And very warming on an evening touched with that pre-winter chill. I would suggest using a good quality Swiss cheese, such as Gruyere cheese. Also, a cup of dry white wine, like Chardonnay, works well instead of the vermouth. Thanks for posting! Al
