1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped celery
2 T. flour
2 1/2 c. chicken broth
1 1/2 lb. fresh asparagus, cut in 3/4" pices and cooked 7 minutes.
1 c. half and half or milk


Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion and celery. Cook 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in flour. Cook one minute, stirring constantly. Stir in broth. Cook 5-7 minutes, stirring constantly.


Remove from heat. Stir in 1/2 to 3/4 of asparagus. In food processor, puree asparagus mixture. (Might need to be done in 2 batches). Return to pan and add rest of asparagus. Stir in half and half. Cook 5-8 minutes. 5 servings.


My husband's favorite vegetable is asparagus and I looked for a good soup recipe for him. I finally found one that was close to what I wanted, but it needed some tweaking. I got it just the way I like it and we both enjoy this soup.
