    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    A simple and really quick recipe for asparagus sauce that can be made when you have asparagus or asparagus tips left over from another dish you are cooking. This sauce is great hot or cold and can be easily frozen. I found it on the English website on which I found my Asparagus and Almond soup recipe, with that recipe. ALL the quantities listed in the ingredients are approximations: it all depends on how much asparagus you are dealing with. So there is one absolutely unlisted ingredient: your culinary discretion! I've added the garlic, but this could easily be omitted. I've posted this for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.

      This is a great way to use those left over asparagus that are otherwise boring next day. I added extra garlic and parsley. Served it with chicken and couscous. Made for 123 Tag.

      I had a half of can of asparagus to use up, and this turned out wonderfully! I followed the recipe exactly, except added about 2 more tablespoons of skim milk, and 1/4 cup of vegetable stock, slowly coming up to heat, and ladled this into warm soup bowls, topped with chives, a bit of sour cream, and some homemade croutons for a tasty and quick soup. Thanks Bluemoon! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* Dec 2008

      Very good. A great way to hide the veggies! I sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil till translucent. Added parsley and basil. Pureed in a blender and served it tossed in penne pasta.
