Submitted by: CRIMSCOUT

Introduction

This is a variation of a recipe I saw in our local journal. The original called for chicken broth, and crumbled crisp prosciutto for a topping. This is a variation of a recipe I saw in our local journal. The original called for chicken broth, and crumbled crisp prosciutto for a topping.

Ingredients

    6 cloves garlic
    1 1/4 lb. asparagus, cut into one inch pieces
    2 lb peeled and diced Yukon Gold potatoes
    1 medium sweet onion, cut into 6 wedges
    1 tblsp EVOO
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    3 cups vegetable broth
    6 oz geek yogurt, plain
    1 tsp lemon juice
    1 tbsp fresh tarragon
    1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms

Directions

Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the garlic on a square of foil and sprinkle with a teaspoon of water. Fold the foil into a packet and set aside. In a large bowl, combine asparagus, potatoes, onion, oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat. Spread out on two baking sheets, with the garlic packet in one corner of the baking sheet. Roast, stiring occasionally, until the asparagus is soft, and the potatoes tender (35-45 minutes). When the vegetables are done, empty the garlic onto the baking sheet and let cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer half of the vegetables to a blender, add 1 1/2 cups of broth and blend till smooth.. Transfer to a large pot. Repeat the process with the rest of the vegetables and mushrooms and broth, then warm the soup over medium heat. Whisk the tarragon, yogurt, and lemon juice into the soup.
