My hubby LOVES Cream of Asparagus soup but it is super fattening because of the cream and I just can’t make it knowing it’s not healthy. For many of you that have followed me over the last 6 years, you know that I always tweak high fat/high calorie dishes and hope to not lose the taste and flavor of the original dish. There are many recipes out there for a creamless version of this soup but all I can say is that mine is delicious and SUPER easy and you won’t miss the cream! Give it a try!
2lbs asparagus with ends chopped off
1 medium onion chopped
7 baby dutch yellow potatoes
6 cups vegetable broth (I swear by the brand osem consomme-in the kosher food isle)
In a large pot, add cooking spray and add onions and cook for 2 min on high. Then add all the rest of the ingredients. When the water comes to a boil, lower the heat and cook for 20min or until potatoes and asparagus are very tender. Then, take an immersion blender and blend all ingredients. Add fresh pepper and serve!
