Not So Creamy Cream Of Asparagus Soup

Not So Creamy Cream Of Asparagus Soup created by Kiwiwife

I cannot believe I found this today! I cut it out of our local paper in March of 1988, made it once, we moved, and I never saw it again till this morning. It was in the basement in an old folder. The reason it appealed to me is that the potatoes act as a thickener rather than a lot of cream. And IF I recall, it was very tasty.. There are also 3 others using the same principle, but I never got to try them.(until now!) Cream of Potato, Cream of Mushroom, and Cream of Tomato.

    Very good and very easy. Added garlic, put almost a kilo of asparagus, substituted margarine for olive oil and cream for no-fat yogurt. Also used the immersion blender. Light, tasty - even kids ate it, despite it being so healthy!

    Very nice recipe. I did add vegetable broth instead of the water but also the chicken broth as the recipe states. I added just a hint of garlic and ground pepper. Garnished with chopped fresh dill and a small scoop of sour cream. It was a very light version of asparagus soup, but definitely enjoyed it and will male it again.
