Ingredients

  • 4 cups chicken broth (or veggie broth)
  • 2 lbs asparagus
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 oz grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Chop the ends off of the asparagus and discard. Cut the remaining asparagus into 1/2 inch pieces; set aside.

  2. Add the butter and chopped onion to a large pot and sauté the onions for a few minutes. Add the asparagus and continue sautéing for a few more minutes. Add the minced garlic and a little salt and pepper, and then sauté for 1 more minute.

  3. Next, add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for a few minutes or until the asparagus is tender. 

  4. Carefully place the soup in a blender and puree until creamy. 

  5. Place it back in your pot and add the heavy cream. Cook on medium heat until hot but do not bring to a full boil. 

  6. Remove from the heat and stir in the grated parmesan. 

  7. Serve immediately, or store in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze for later.
