The forty-seventh recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Creamy Asparagus Soup, can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 62, and fits in with the Super Soups theme chosen for the group by Chaya.
Ingredient list: leeks, olive oil, potato, thyme, salt, pepper, chicken broth, asparagus, lemon juice and yogurt.
It's no secret that I am a soup lover, I eat soup every season all year around. Matt is always happy to be my cohort in soup forays as we are both happy when any dining experience involves soup. Creamy soups are comforting and delicious, no doubt about it. That said, with creamy soups you have a lot invested in fat and calories so they don't seem to be a good every day choice. This recipe has not one ounce of cream in it, no cream at all. The creaminess comes from blending all the ingredients with the small potato acting as a thickener. It tastes fresh and light and definitely like a asparagus, which is a favorite, so this recipe hit on all of that for me and I would definitely make this one again, it was a very nice lunch. Definitely worthy of a repeat.
