Asparagus Soup

What you need: 

2 lbs asparagus
2 large potatoes
2 tablespoon dill
1/4 cup unbleached flour
1 cup rice milk

What you do: 

Cut potatoes into small pieces. In an approximately 3 qt. saucepan, boil potatoes until extremely tender. While this is happening, wash asparagus. Remove woody ends. Cut into 1 sections, setting aside tips. Add non-tip sections to potato pot and cook until asparagus has gone beyond bright green to olive green (but not brown :)). Add dill. Asparagus should be soft enough to mash along with potatoes, in the cooking water. Dont throw out any of the cooking water.
lightly brown flour in a small saucepan and allow to cool somewhat before adding rice milk. Add liquid gradually to make a smooth pseudo-roux and add the roux to the soup. Add the asparagus tips and continue cooking the soup just until they are tender and bright green. Salt to taste. Yum.

This soup is so delicious... I caramelised aome onions in garlic first, then boiled potatoes in the same pot with veggie broth, adding just enough water to cover potatoes. Then I add asparagus ( using tips aswell) and about half a bunch of fresh dill, and once soft enough I purée it all and garnish with dill. It looks gorgeous and tastes out of this world!



In my endless quest to make all of my meals as colorful as possible I used sweet potatoes for this and oh. my. goodness.  Simply deliciousness. 

Eat well my friends!


I made this last night and it was sooooooooo good! I blenderized the onions/garlic/potatoes/asparagus etc. I didn't really want to add all the roux stuff so I spooned the soup into bowls then drizzled some roux on top and put a spring of parsley. I am all about the garnish, can be very impressive for a boyfriend's birthday meal! :P
