Ingredients

    cup (4 oz) goat cheese. Room temperature
    1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp chopped basil leaves
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    Cooking spray
    2 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
    1 large leek, white and pale green parts only, thinly sliced
    4 cups low-sodium veg broth
    2 lb asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 Line a small baking sheet with parchment. Using a fork combine goat cheese and 2 tbsp basil. Season with tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Grease a 1/2-oz cookie scoop or a round tablespoon measure with Cooking spray. Scoop goat cheese mixture into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate while you make the soup.

2 In a Dutch Oven or large saucepan, heat butter Over medium heat. Add leek and cook, stirring constantly until softened, 3 to 4min. Add broth, asparagus, remaining 1/2 cup basil, 1/2 tsp salt and tsp pepper. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
