CREAM OF ASPARAGUS SOUP

by admin

Years ago there was a local restaurant that made the most amazing cream of asparagus soup. Unfortunately, the restaurant closed and as a result the amazing soup was now gone forever too.

The past few days I’ve been craving the soup, so today I decided to make my own. Forget the past! This recipe was WAY better than I even remember their soup being. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 yellow onions- chopped
  • 1 cube of butter
  • 2 bunches of asparagus- chopped into 1-2" pieces
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 3 c. chicken broth
  • 2 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 3 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. bacon crumbles
  • 6 T sour cream
  • 1 c. shredded parmesan cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

Sauté the onions in the butter for a couple of minutes.  Add asparagus and bacon crumbles.  Cook for just a couple of minutes then add the flour.  Stir to coat everything well then add the broth, cream, milk, and sour cream.  Simmer for 5-10 minutes then add the parmesan cheese.  Cook until the asparagus is as soft as you like it.  (Some like a little crunch, some like it really soft- just remember to keep stirring it or the bottom will burn)

Optional:

You could make this entire recipe using Thrive Life freeze dried ingredients! As a matter of fact, for the chicken stock I used 3 c. of water and 3 t. of Thrive’s chicken bouillon.

Thrive sells the freeze dried asparagus, onions, butter, milk, and chicken bouillon.
