Asparagus Soup


Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Comments

Really good and low calorie! You can use more asparagus if you like a stronger flavor. For thicker soup, reduce the amount of half and half.

Ingredients

1 pound asparagus, fresh, or frozen, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 pound cauliflower, about half a head, chopped

2 cups chicken broth, fat free

1/2 onion(s), medium, chopped

1 cup half and half, fat free

4 teaspoons Greek yogurt, low fat

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper, bl

Preparation

Place broth, cauliflower and onions in a soup pot and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 8 minutes. Add asparagus and cook for an additional 3 minutes until all vegetables are tender. Remove four pieces of asparagus for garnish, then place ingredients in a blender with fat free half and half(in batches if necessary) and blend for about 1 minute or until desired consistency. Pour into bowls and garnish low fat yogurt, cracked black pepper and a piece of asparagus on top. Or you could garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
