“My vegetarian husband had all 4 wisdom teeth out and was on liquids for several days. This was one of the recipes I threw together for him. The "dried herb mix" is a mix of dried herbs I keep handy in a spice grinder: rosemary, bay leaves, thyme, parsley, white pepper, sage, chives, marjoram, basil, oregano. Free free to use any of these you prefer to taste.”

  1. In one pot on medium heat, add 3 cups of water & stir in bouillon until dissolved.
  2. Bring soup pot to a boil, add potatoes and reduce heat to low boil.
  3. In a skillet or saute pan on medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic & onions.
  4. When onions are almost translucent, add the asparagus & herb mix and saute until just soft.
  5. Add the asparagus mixture to the soup pot and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and blend soup to desired consistency.
  7. If using a standalone blender, return pureed soup to pot and warm over low heat. If using an immersion blender in soup pot, feel free to skip this step.
