Winner Winner Green Dinner

We’re  calling Asparagus Soup experiment a success.
Very nice flavor and texture.  My only substitutions were I used 2% milk, and I didn’t measure much.  I know I significantly more vegetable broth!
I used my immersion blender and I’m not sure it’s still speaking to me. Asparagus is not meant to be immersion blended!
Last test will be freezer & thaw.Recipe Photos

  1. Have you tried almond milk? I like it best

  2. @MsCatbert2You – Yup!  I don’t like soy milk at all.  We always have almond milk in the house.  I wasn’t sure about it in a soup though.  Have you used almond milk in soup?  Do you get any odd taste like you do with rice milk?

  3. sounds wonderful. i love asparagus.

  4. @tracy – I cook with it all the time and yes soup too.

  5. my imersion blender is a cheap one, so it hates me often…love the entire swanson organic ‘broth’ family!  getting into their ‘stocks’ because it’s hard to find beef marrow bones…

  6. Glad your experiment was a success. I will be interested how freeze and thaw turns out.  Since I am the only asparagus lover in the house I would have to freeze some of it. Will your hubby eat this?

  7. @skanickadee – I’ll let you know.  Corey liked it, and would eat it.  I only let him have a taste. 🙂

  8. I’m relatively new to asparagus, and the only way I ate it and liked it was under the broiler at my brother’s place.  It had kind of a smoky flavor that was really good.  Your soup ingredients do sound tasty, though!Kathi

  9. Did it make your pee green?Asparagus is so expensive here (about $7 for a bundle) that I savour each stem dipped in butter.  

  10. wheres the beef?   

  11. Oh, what a pleasant surprise this is! I am the possessor of fresh asparagus… I should try this. I wonder if it would be yummy with beef broth?

  12. @CuriousGeorgina – The vegetarian broth we use has a distinct beef aroma to me, so I say yes.
