This is how they make asparagus around my dh's house. It is enough to make a meatless meal. It's very satisfying.
- Cut asparagus into 1 inch pieces; cover with water and boil until tender.
- Add flour to milk; stir so there are no lumps.
- Drain asparagus, keeping 1 cup liquid.
- Add the milk mixture, salt and pepper. Cook until thick.
- Meanwhile, toast the bread, cut into points (halves).
- Pour creamed asparagus over toast.
