Asparagus and Onion Soup

A delicious creamy soup using soy milk for fall or winter.



  1. In a large pot for 3-5 minutes sauté the red onion or leek (if you prefer) with olive oil.
  2. Add asparagus (used canned because it cooks faster and doesn't get stringy in the soup), chicken broth, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper (to taste).
  3. Cook for 15 minutes and stir (a few times).
  4. Blend soup in a blender or with a hand mixer till smooth.
  5. Return to pot and add soy milk (or any milk you prefer but soy milk will make it creamier without adding cream). .
  6. Cook till hot and serve.

I also substituted the soy milk with half and half. It lowers the carbs and still tastes good.
