    Kendra*'s Note:

    I have absolutely no idea where this recipe came from. All I know it is GOOD! I usually make it with asparagus, although I've also used broccoli. My DH loves this soup!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Take one asparagus spear, hold at both ends, and bend it until it breaks.
    2. 2
      Use the broken spear as a guide and cut the remaining spears to approximately the same length, discarding the large ends.
    3. 3
      Slice asparagus spears in 1 inch lengths.
    4. 4
      You should have about 2 cups of asparagus pieces.
    5. 5
      Cook the asparagus pieces in a small amount of boiling water for 10 minutes or until tender.
    6. 6
      Drain well.
    7. 7
      While asparagus cooks, place (unmelted) butter, flour, and garlic into a blender container.
    8. 8
      Top with cooked asparagus, then add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
    9. 9
      Pour into saucepan and heat gently until soup thickens.
    10. 10
      I like to use thinly sliced green onion tops, low-fat sour cream and a couple of croutons for a garnish.

      That was delicious. Just added 1 more teaspoon of salt and decreased the amount of garlic. By the way, you can use all parts of asparagus. Tried, tasted, approved.

      This is a good and easy soup. I was feeling lazy, so I used garlic powder and accidentally spilled it, but it was still good. I used the whole asparagus. I had some huge pieces and used the vegetable peeler to peel the lower stems, and that made it edible.
