    3       tb           Extra virgin olive oil
    1       x            Onion
    2       x            Carrots

   Peel the cloves of garlic and roast them in 1 tb of

   soft but not brown.
   
   Peel and quarter the onion, peel and slice the
   carrots, scrub (but do not peel) the potatoes and cut

   Add the roast garlic cloves and their residual oil to
   the vegetables, cool slightly and liquidize. Season
