“I have absolutely no idea where this recipe came from. All I know it is GOOD! I usually make it with asparagus, although I've also used broccoli. My DH loves this soup!”

Ingredients Nutrition


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