  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 cups gluten-free vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  1. Preheat your oven to 410 degrees F.

  3. When finished cooking, put the vegetables in a large soup pan and add the wine, broth and thyme.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes.
