Asparagus Soup

Asparagus Soup

Ingredients:
1 lb fresh asparagus
¾ C white or yellow onion chopped
2  C chicken broth
1  T butter
2  T all-purpose flour
1  t salt
½ t black pepper
½ C heavy whipping cream
4  T lime juice
Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Wash and chop asparagus. Simmer with chopped onion and ¼ C chicken broth until tender. Remove a few of the tips of the asparaguses to slice for final garnishing. Dump contents into blender and blend until smooth.  Make rue with butter, salt, and pepper in same pot you simmered asparagus and onion in. Dump remaining chicken broth in and bring to a light boil.  Add asparagus/onion mixture and stir in cream. Add lime juice to taste (I’ve found it about takes about 4 T before you can really note it). Bring entire mixture to an even heat and serve. Garnish with Parmesan and sliced asparagus spearheads.

Variation:

Add bacon and bacon renderings. Yummm… (A little bit goes a long way)
