I forgot to cook the asparagus for our friends yesterday.
So I had a couple bunches of asparagus in the frig.
Decided to make some soup.
Oh man. Did it turn out awesome!!!!!!!
Give it a try.
1 pound fresh asparagus, woody ends trimmed
1 cup chopped onion
1 celery rib, chopped
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 C chicken broth
1 TBSP butter
2 TBSP flour
1 1/2 C chicken broth
Splash of white wine
1 C milk
1/2 C plain yogurt
1 tsp lemon juice
Bring 1/2 cup broth, asparagus, onion, celery, garlic salt & pepper to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer until veggies are tender.
Blend cooked veggies until smooth in blender.
Melt butter in stock pot. Stir in flour. Cook 2 min. Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and a nice splash of white wine. Increase heat and bring to a boil.
Add veggie mixture and milk. Whisk in plain yogurt and lemon juice.
Stir until heated through.
