Simply Asparagus

17 Feb

Hello Friends! Look at that! It’s an actual soup with soup in it! And a delicious and easy one, if I do say so myself. Last week I got a huge package of asparagus at Costco (which is a place where happy things come true, like a bottle of honey the size of your head, but also can be scary, because WHO NEEDS THAT MUCH TOILET PAPER???) and then got really busy and five days later realized if I didn’t cook it it would go to waste. So soup it was. This soup was really simple, very tasty, and made me feel like spring was almost here… one can only hope!

Simply Asparagus

  • Saute 4-6 cloves of garlic in olive oil on low until transluscent
  • Add one chopped medium-sized yellow onion and cook until almost opaque, adding in the grated rind of two lemons (yellow part only)
  • Add in 2-3 regular sized bunches (or one Costco bag) of asparagus, chopped into 1-inch pieces with the tough ends kept out, and cover, stirring occasionally
  • Once the asparagus is most of the way cooked through, add chicken or vegetable broth and let cook until warm
  • Blend with an immersion or regular blender
  • Add the juice of two lemons, and 1/2-1 cup heavy cream, salt, and pepper to taste
  • Enjoy!
