Soups are wonderful for those cold days, I love to have a hot bowl of soup with crackers, a warm blanket watching an old classic movie!
It’s a great time to break out a homemade and healthy soup recipe – Creamy Asparagus soup.
I’ve always enjoyed making my own soups and most of us I’m sure keep many ingredients in the frig. Enjoy and let me know if you try this recipe.
(recipe comes from Ninja Kitchen)
1 lb. asparagus spears, washed, woody bottoms trimmed and cut into two inch pieces
2 medium russet potatoes, peeled, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 cups chicken broth
Dash cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Place ingredients into a saucepot and cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes until the asparagus and potatoes are tender. Cool to lukewarm. Working in batches if needed, transfer the mixture into a 72 oz. pitcher and pulse until smooth. Reheat soup over stove or in a microwavable container and enjoy.
NOTE: Always allow the soup to cool to room temperature before blending. Once blended, transfer mixture back to a saucepan and heat to desired temperature. Serve hot. A nice crusty bread is the perfect compliment to this soup!
