Fresh Asparagus Soup

Posted By jendudley on May 8, 2007 at 8:25PM

I found this on Allrecipes.com and thought since Asparagus is all over right now, I would post it to the group. It looks really good...I mean, it has CHEESE in it!!!

1 pound fresh asparagus
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups vegetable broth
1 cup soy milk
1/2 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Place asparagus and onion in a saucepan with 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until the vegetables are tender.
2. Reserve a few asparagus tips for garnish. Place remaining vegetable mixture in an electric blender and puree until smooth.
3. Melt butter in the pan that was used for simmering the asparagus and onions. Stir while sprinkling flour, salt, and pepper into the butter. Do not let the flour brown. Allow the mixture to cook only 2 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 1/4 cups vegetable broth and increase the heat. Continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil.
4. Stir the vegetable puree and milk into the saucepan. Whisk yogurt into the mixture, followed by lemon juice. Stir until heated through, then ladle into bowls. Garnish with reserved asparagus tips. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Sunday May 7th 2007 Meatless Monday thoughts

Posted By jendudley on May 6, 2007 at 8:20PM

I think I will make it tomorrow. I made a huge pitcher of gazpacho yesterday and I have salad stuff. I also have some squash, but I don't know what to do with it. Anyone else already thinking about Meatless Monday?

1st Monday out of the gate

Posted By jendudley on Apr 24, 2007 at 11:06AM

Here is what I ate all day:
cheesecake cookies
goldfish crackers
salad from Jack in the Box ( I took the chicken off)
Veggie Chips from the local grocery store
hagen daaz sticky toffee pudding ice cream

Not a great start, but I remained meatless. How did everyone
else do?

I have found a few recipes that I am going to try to post later this afternoon. Hopefully my next monday will be more nutritious!
