    Literary Mom's Note:

    I created this for the Ready Set Cook contest in 2003. Morsels of mock crab in a spicy creamy asparagus soup. Microwaving the vegetables is a time and nutrient saver, but you could also boil or steam them.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook asparagus, onion, and potato (layered in that order) in a round covered casserole dish, with the chicken broth, in the microwave on high for 10 minutes (stirring 2-3 times).
    2. 2
      When vegetables are tender, remove half of the potatoes and set them aside (you can also set aside the asparagus tips if you like).
    3. 3
      Put the vegetables in a blender and puree until smooth (you may have to do it in two batches, depending on the size of your blender). Alternately, put them in a pot and use a hand blender.
    4. 4
      Put the puree in a pot on medium heat and whisk in 1 T flour. Stir until smooth and soup begins to boil.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat to medium-low (simmering) and add the remaining potatoes to the pot.
    6. 6
      Stir in the butter, milk, garlic, curry, cayenne, black pepper, salt and Worcestershire, and simmer for 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add the crab (and asparagus tips if you saved them) and simmer for 5 minutes.

      This soup was really unique and different. I thought the potatoes thickened the chowder nicely, and the asparagus gave the soup a really interesting color. At first, I thought 1 whole tablespoon of garlic powder seemed like alot, but after tasting the finished product, I think the flavor worked well with the curry powder and the immitation crab. It had a real intense flavor, with just the right amount of heat. I used vegetable broth in place of chicken, (just my personal preference.)
