Green Asparagus Soup

You would think I am fed up with the darn green asparagus here, but hey you have to be creative with what you can get.

Alright my latest venture in Green.

Green Asparagus Soup


1 bundle of green asparagus (peel about 2/3 to 3/4 of the lower part of the asparagus, peel from tip towards bottom, this way it is not getting stringy)

Cut asparagus into 2 inch pieces, leave the heads whole

Boil in ca 500 ml salt water until soft

Take the tips out of the water

Blend the pieces with the water and add 1 tablespoon of Garlic Fresh (cream) cheese or 1 clove of fresh garlic and 1 Table Spoon of cream cheese

Freshly ground pepper (I love using the rainbow pepper grinder you can buy)

2 Spritzer lemon juice

Once all this is blended into a creamy mix

Add the asparagus tips, stir carefully with a spoon and let it simmer for a couple of minutes so the tips heat up again

Serve

Tip: Use low fat cheese instead of cream … same effect less calories
