Directions


1. To prep asparagus, rinse thoroughly, cut off dry ends of stalks or your soup will be grainy and gross. Roughly chop remaining asparagus stalks, leaving about 1" left of the tops where the leaves are. Separate these tips for later use.
2. Peel and thinly slice carrots lengthwise, then chop crosswise to appx 2” lengths.
3. Clean and quarter onion.
4. Cut the top off the garlic clove, place on baking pan, pour olive oil over the clove.
Place all the vegetables prepped above on a large jelly roll pan; toss with 2-4 T olive oil; cover all with tin foil. Roast at 450 degrees for approximately one hour.
5. Place bacon in heavy bottomed stock pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat and saute until starting to brown.
6. Add the roasted vegetable, leaving the asparagus tips out. Stir occasionally until asparagus starts to brown a fair amount.
7. Once browned reduce heat to medium then pour in chicken base, milk, soup, water, kale, beans and seasonings. Bring to simmer stirring until smooth. Puree with immersion blender or in regular blender in batches.
8. Once smooth, stir cornstarch—if needed for thickening with a few tablespoons of water until smooth, stir into the simmering soup. Mix in the florets set aside earlier and chopped Canadian bacon.
9. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until asparagus tips have softened.
