Eat– for Good Health

Do you love creamy asparagus soup?  Here is my low calorie recipe– Cream of Asparagus Soup I Recipe

1 lb fresh asparagus
1 butter spray “shot”
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
2 cups nonfat milk
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

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.
