Preparation: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the onions and garlic in a shallow roasting pan, and add three cups of chicken stock. Sprinkle with thyme, pepper and coarse salt, and dot with butter. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 1.5 hours. Remove the pan from the oven and purée the onions and garlic with the liquid in a food processor until smooth. With the blender running, gradually add the remaining two cups of stock and the cream. Pour the resulting soup into a large saucepan. Season to taste and heat through slowly, making sure the soup does not come to the boil. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
