This is a recipe I got from my sister 2 years ago (she didn't remember it at all, and I had to share it back to her!) This is a GREAT way to use up the bottom ends of Asparagus that you are supposed to cut off because they get a bit tough. Use the top, tender part for vegetables, and then make this soup with the rest.
Creamy Asparagus Soup
1/2 an onion, cut up
1 large potato, peeled and cut up
4 cups chicken broth (I used water and chicken bullion)
1 lb asparagus
1 t thyme
1 t lemon juice
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 c powdered milk (in dry form)
Dump everything except the powdered milk into pan and simmer until vegetables are soft. Add milk, then put everything into a blender and blend until smooth.
When I tried making this with chicken broth and liquid milk it was too runny and tastless. I love this soup, made this way.
