Asparagus Soup

Mary’s Homemade, No-fat, No Dairy, Vegan DELICIOUS Asparagus Soup Recipe (Makes 4 servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 big bunches of fresh asparagus
  • 2-3 leeks, white portions only
  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 4 cups of water
  • Salt to taste (1/2 tsp.)
  1. Chop asparagus into 1-1/2 inch lengths. Separate into woody stems, tender stalks, and tips.
  2. Cook woody stems for 30 mins. Remove & discard the woody stems, saving the broth.
  3. While broth is cooking, peel and dice potatoes. Also, slice whites of leeks into thin slices.
  4. Add diced potatoes, sliced leeks, and tender portions of asparagus stems into asparagus broth.  Cook another 20-30 mins., until all vegetables are very soft.
  5. In the meantime, steam the asparagus tips for 5 mins. Then plunge them into icy water to preserve their brilliant green color and crunchiness. Reserve these separately for garnish.
  6. Once the vegetables have cooked, pour the entire contents of the pot into your blender.  Blend on high until it’s all a creamy, smooth consistency.

Serve in soup bowls, with blanched tips for garnish.  Yummy and healthy!!!
