Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup soup and 1/4 teaspoon truffle oil)
Look for bottled minced roasted garlic in the produce section near the fresh garlic. It adds a deep, sweet caramelized flavor. A drizzle of intensely flavored truffle oil makes the soup extraspecial. You can substitute another flavored oil, such as basil oil, instead.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon bottled minced roasted garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 cups organic vegetable broth (such as Swanson Certified Organic)
