Fresh Asparagus Soup

Well, I suppose that's what you get when you combine pre-finals, finals, post-finals, a lovely mother-in-law visit followed by a good old friend visit. Who can blame me for not finding the time to post? :)

Here's a soup I made a few weeks ago (twice) and enjoyed. Asparagus is just coming into season, and the gorgeous stalks called to me at Market of Choice.

I altered this recipe. I omitted the onion (I'm a nursing mama), used homemade chicken stock, substituted fresh raw milk for the suggested soy, and doubled the Parmesan cheese allotment. Soups are an easy send to school for the boy.

Here's some info on the dangers of soy in our diet and some benefits of making your own stock. I'm trying to make chicken stock once a week. I'd like to branch out and make beef broth, as one chicken a week is a lot for two people to eat!

  1. Beautiful! I really love soup.

    Why no onion if you're nursing? My poor children!
