Super Clean Cream of Asparagus Soup Recipe - protein packed!
Ingredients (4-5 servings):
1 medium onion, diced
2 pounds of asparagus, trimmed and cut in one inch pieces, remove the “woody part”
4-cups of chicken stock
1/2-cup Greek yogurt, nonfat or 2% fat
salt and pepper to taste
1 TBS of cayenne pepper
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove and drain. Reserve 2 cups cooking liquid from the boil.
2. Dice onions and sautee on high heat until slightly browned.
3. Transfer cooking liquid and asparagus to a food processor and puree until smooth. (If you don’t like biting onion, you can puree the sautee too. Otherwise just leave it to stir in by hand later.)
4. Combine asparagus puree with chicken broth in a medium stockpot and heat over medium until warm. Stir in yogurt, salt, pepper, onion, and cayenne. Serve!
