SO HOW'D IT GO?

A Costco run left me with 2.5 lbs of asparagus.  I grilled some then thought of soup! I found this recipe and used the rest of the asparagus.  Followed the recipe to a T and it is amazing! I'm letting it cool then am going to dive in! Yummmmmmmmy! 8-)

Ok, so this was so good, tonight I decided to make it again, only instead of using asparagus, I used half broccoli and half cauliflower, and I saved some out before blending, to give the soup some chunkiness.  I just smashed some of it with a potatoe masher.  This was just as good as the asparagus soup!!  Who would've thought this was so easy.  I always thought broccoli soup had cream and cheese in it!!

This was SO good!!!  I used vegetable boullion, instead of broth, so I didn't have to add any salt or extra garlic.  It was creamy, very flavorful, and was wonderful just to sip out of a mug!!  I didn't add the lemon, I don't know how much that would've altered the taste.  This is so healthy, and guilt-free!!  So creamy, you'd never know there was no cream or milk in it.  Very easy to make.  I will definately be making this more often, as asparagus is in full season right now!!

This is pretty good!  I had a bag of frozen asparagus that I did not like steamed or roasted (it was sort of mushy, but had a great asparagus flavor)---so I was looking for a soup recipe to put it in.  I had everything for this on hand, and am very glad I tried it.  Will make again.
