Four Lily Soup

There are no lilies in this delicious soup.  However, the sweet onion, red onion, shallots, garlic, and the Easter Lily all belong to the same lily family.

What you will need:
1/2 large sweet onion, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
10  oz. shallots, sliced
1 small bulb of garlic, peeled
1/4 C olive oil
2 1/2 C chicken broth
1 1/2 t chopped fresh thyme
1 C heavy crem
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Toss onions, garlic, and shallots with olive oil.  Roast at 325  in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Mix in blender with broth until smooth. Heat until simmer.  Blend in cream and seasonings.  Simmer until soup is thoroughly heated.  Garnish with croutons, fresh parsley, and grated Swiss cheese.
