DIRECTIONS

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