Flavorful and low in fat and calories, this is a great (and very filling) addition to any meal.

  3. Ladle small portions of the soup into a blender and puree.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Not with the use of flour, unfortunately!

For phase 1, leave out the butter and flour and just saute the onions in a little bit of olive oil.
does not include points for serving.

I haven't tried this recipe, but I think I would like it, but I would add 3 oz. chicken breast. If you add cream, I would suggest Fat Free half and half, maybe a half cup. The points for this according to nutritional facts, without the cream and chicken, would be 2 points per serving.

I just made this for dinner tonight, and it was wonderful! Instead of using heavy cream, I used nonfat sour cream and lowfat yogurt. And I sprinkled a little turkey bacon bits on top. Yummy!

This soup was delicous! Even my kids and hubby liked it! I only had to buy the asparagus b/c I had the other ingredients on hand. Easy and great!

Not with the flour. Cook down the chicken stock for thicker. Sub 1 cup of !/2 & 1/2. the puree of asp. will act as a thickener
